The OKC Zoo is joining efforts with Pepsi and Aquafina® to inspire the next generation of conservation heroes to share creative solutions for promoting recycling through its annual student art contest, the Pepsi Vending Machine Art Contest.

The Zoo invites Oklahoma students to draw on their artistic talents and inventive ideas to inspire others to recycle by entering the Pepsi Vending Machine Art Contest now through Friday, April 30, 2021. Finding inspiration from the contest theme, Go Wild for Recycling, students are encouraged to illustrate creative ideas for raising awareness about recycling and the direct impact it has on the natural world and wildlife. Oklahoma students in grades K through 12 are eligible to enter through their school, homeschool, civic group (e.g. Scouts), or on their own. Contest designs will be judged on creativity, originality, meeting art specifications and relevance to the contest theme. Official entry forms and complete contest details are available online at //www.okczoo.org/pepsicontest.

Entries become property of the Zoo and are due by Friday, April 30, 2021.
