Benjamin N. Cardozo High School wins grand prize in Spring 2014 Made by Milk contest for Alice in Wonderland Themed Carton Creation

MEMPHIS, TENN. (May 23, 2014) – Benjamin N. Cardozo High School from Bayside, New York has been named the grand prize winner in Evergreen Packaging’s Made By Milk Carton Construction Contest. Evergreen Packaging, a leader in paperboard carton manufacturing, has sponsored the competition since August 2012. The contest theme for Spring 2014 was “Stories.” Students were encouraged to build characters, symbols, or scenes from their favorite fairy tale. The winning school used 1,250 recycled cartons to recreate a scene from Alice in Wonderland, titled “Alice and Absolem’s Milk Made Hideaway.” The creation includes a life-size replica of Alice, Absolem the Caterpillar and the Cheshire Cat.

“It’s rewarding to see students get so involved in collecting, recycling and repurposing milk cartons to create a prize-winning design that will help fund activities for their school,” said Katie Lewis, marketing manager for Evergreen Packaging. “I’m amazed at the imagination and dedication students of all ages put into their carton creations. Congratulations to all winners for their creativity in using cartons to bring stories to life.” 

98 entries from schools across the U.S. submitted their recycled milk carton designs for a chance to win up to $5,000. Each team was required to write a short essay on how the prize money would be used. Extra points were given if the prize money went towards eco-friendly practices. Benjamin N. Cardozo High School plans to use their grand prize winning money to fund recycled art classes at the school.
