HELP with Wacky Scholarship Idea...?
Well Im entering into this scholarship contest and it requires me to make a free account on their site and post pictures, videos, or blogs. The site and scholarship are circled around issues facing the world today. Issues meaning anything to do with politics to environmental topics. So I love taking pictures of things like a hobby and decided to post pictures as my entry into the scholarship. My idea is based around recycling. So I need help on some ideas, since my grandfather recycles bottles for cash, I have hundreds of them here, and wanted to do something that made the idea of recycling stand out. Here are a few clues that I wanted to use along with the bottles, but just want help on raking in ideas with these clues: water, global warming, pollution, littering. It would be a very great deal of help for me if anybody could help me get some ideas on what I could take pictures of dealing with recycling... and these bottles. lol

Much of art and craft involves recycle old materials into new. The bottles have thousands of interesting uses. Do you have good photos of the Watts Towers? Or there was a cafe, called the Wine Cellar, in Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco that had the partitions made of wine bottles. You might find the bottle crafting kits and tools from back in the 1970s illustrated somewhere. For all I know, they are still being made. I remember a great bud vase I had once which was a Coke bottle that had been heated and stretched.
To me, recycling is just the modern form of a general thriftiness we all learned back in Girl Scouts in my day: making things from materials that would otherwise be thrown away. There are hundreds of books like my old "Treasures from Throwaways." Perhaps you could look some up on the Dover Publications web site, listed below, and right-click the pictures of the book covers (all are jpeg files; I've used them everywhere) to include in your presentation.Source(s): http://store.doverpublications.com/index.html http://store.doverpublications.com/0486212513.html

I am a decorative painter and one of my favorite things to paint are old bottles. See if you can find someone in your area who paints and see what beautiful treasures that they could make out of some old bottles and photograph them.

if the bottles are colored..try smashing them and making a mosaic ..you could also incorporate other found/recycled objects. good luck!
