Trash turned to fortune for Chris Lopez, the winner of the Art of Recycling Contest. The computer science junior, along with the help of his friends, created “Mr. Roboto” to win a $75 Best Buy gift card.

“I was shocked when I received the call about us winning,” Lopez said. “I had no reason to believe that Mr. Roboto would be something other students liked.”

Lopez and his friends were talking outside of the UC Underground when they were asked by a member of Green UH if they would like to try to make art out of recyclables and win a prize.

“We did it because it sounded fun, and we were actually a bit curious to see if we could do something a bit creative,” he said.

Green UH provided recyclables, markers, hot glue and other craft supplies for students participating in the RecycleMania event. Ten works of art were created with Mr. Roboto taking the top prize after students judged the creations in the MD Anderson Library lobby on March 23. Second place, winning a $50 gift certificate, went to “Recyclable Me” by Andrew Thai. The third place prize of a $25 gift certificate was won by Kylie DeFrance for “Stay Puff.”

The winners will receive their prizes during the RecycleMania Closing Ceremony on April 6 at the UC Satellite from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Artists can take home their creations or give it to Green UH to display in the Cougar Card office.
