Morinville – Repurposed recyclables began entering the Morinville Community Library over the weekend, entrants in the first Battle of the Boxes, an event that was open to individuals, families and businesses over the holidays. The challenge was to take left over packaging materials and turn them into whatever could be imagined. Using scissors, glue, tape and special Makedo fasteners, participants converted the recycling into a work of art ready to enter the competition.

Entries will be divided into four categories Monday: Children’s Choice, Patron’s Pick, The Most Useable, and TKO [Technical Knock Out].
Judging takes place at the library Jan. 8 until Jan. 12. Patrons and residents are invited to drop into the library to cast their votes and see the creativity first hand.

The event was organized by Morinville resident Stacey Buga.
