4th annual Reuse Inspiration contest

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Construction Junction are sponsoring their 4th Annual Reuse Inspiration Contest for residents of Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Washington and Westmoreland counties.

There are two categories:

  • Home renovation - creative re-use of one or more items in renovation of one room or an entire building.
  • Art - creative re-use of one or more items in a two- or three-dimensional work of art.

The top three winners in each category receive two tickets to the sold-out Big Pour beer festival scheduled for Sept. 6 at Construction Junction and a chance to show off their handiwork in the Post-Gazette that day. Sorry, last year’s winners are not eligible.

How to enter:

In 250 words or less, describe the motivation behind your project and how it was achieved. Submit the entry information through our online form at http://biz.post-gazette.com/RenovationContest/default.aspx. The form will allow you to upload up to 10 photos of your project.
