2021 - Division II (Ages 10-13)

All over the world, food waste, carbon emissions, littering, and so many other forms of pollution are slowly degrading our Earth. This is highly problematic, given that if we continue to live this way, polluting our planet, we will reach the point of no return. After that, there is no way of fixing the damage we caused and the harm we inflicted on the billions of people living on our beautiful planet. This isn’t our reality yet, but shortly, it could be. We have the chance to rise up and make a change, and we need to take this opportunity to make a difference. The future is in our hands, and all we have to do is try. This is our home, and we should try to save it, and our future. Protect, not pollute. Use renewable energy, don’t frack for oil. Tiny actions may help, but a cohesive worldwide effort will fix it. My idea for this piece was centered around the time that people waste not caring about their own carbon footprint, or what they are doing to the Earth. People don’t realize how much of a difference it could make for one person to stand up and speak out. This issue matters to me because if people could see what was happening to our world, we might stand a chance of saving it for the generations to come. For this art piece, I used a digital software to illustrate, and then decided on using real recyclable waste to add to the look of the landfill.
