Tampa, FL-- "One man's trash is another man's treasure."- that statement couldn't ring more true for students from 66 Hillsborough County schools next Tuesday, when they will compete in the 2nd Annual Re-Purposed Doodad Sculpture Competition.

Organizers say a total of 3,000 cigar boxes (left over after the actual cigars were donated to American Service members) will be transformed from "throw-aways" to "art" by students from all grades.

A jury of artists will judge the complete works and award various prizes, and even a summer art scholarship, to the winning students.

The event takes place at noon at Horizon Bay in Hyde Park- where the works will later be displayed during a touring show for visitors. 

This competition serves as an opportunity "to build bridges through the arts between local Artists, Hyde Park Seniors, Community Volunteers, Students, Teachers and The Fire, Children's and History Museums," explains a release.

Good luck to those competing!
