Calling all do-it-yourselfers! Do you have what it takes to win SMART's Upcycled Halloween Costume Contest?
In celebration of Halloween, one of the most celebrated holidays in the U.S., SMART announces its first annual SMART Upcycled Halloween Costume Contest. Do-it-yourselfers and costume amateurs are invited to enter their homemade, upcycled Halloween costume for a chance to win a $200 Amazon gift card.
"According to the National Retail Federation, Halloween will be celebrated in record numbers this year with more than two-thirds of Americans buying Halloween costumes," says Jackie King, executive director of SMART. "With this contest we want to encourage people to create an upcycled costume using materials and textiles they already have rather than purchasing something new."
How to Enter Your Boo-tiful Creation
To enter, contest participants must post at least one photo of their upcycled Halloween costume on SMART's Facebook page, along with a detailed description of the materials used to make the costume and the hashtag #SMARTHalloween. On Monday, November 10, 2014, SMART will announce a first, second and third place winner on its Facebook page.
Scary Contest Details
- Costumes must be created using at least 70 percent of recycled material.
- Photos must be original and taken during the 2014 Halloween season (October 1-31, 2014)
- Costume descriptions must include a detailed list of material used to create the costume.
The contest closes on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Once the contest closes, SMART's executive team will choose the first, second and third place contest winners to receive a $200, $100 and $50 Amazon gift card respectively.
