Friday, June 26, 2015

Get inspired at this weekend’s Shoreline Arts Festival then enter your own creations at the Urban County Fair at NW SolarFest.

NW SolarFest is July 25, 10am to 5pm at Shoreline Community College.

The Urban County Fair is your opportunity to enter creations for competition and public display.

For this year they have five categories and three levels of entries.

Fill out the application and enter today. Application deadline is July 15, 2014. Download the application here.

The three entry levels are: 
  • Kids - to 12 years of age
  • Teen - 13-19 years of age
  • Adult – over 20
Sustainable Living Categories

Backyard Floral Arrangement: Your best display of a floral arrangement using only materials from your backyard. Containers may be from your house or second hand shops. Do not go out and buy something new. Floral arrangements must be tabletop.

Container Gardening: Your container garden must be movable by one person and no bigger than you are willing to transport. There are two divisions - Edible and Ornamental.

Best Original Recycle or Upcycle Idea: Make and display your most interesting demonstration of reusing materials. Displays must be small and light enough to transport.
  • Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
  • Recycling is a process to change waste materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials 

Restyled Clothing/Wearables: The remake of anything worn on the body, including accessories. Items will be displayed flat or hung.

Food Art: Food is always part of a county fair. However since the competition is People’s Choice we don't have the ability to judge a food item by taste. However any food that is visual can be entered. 

Think seed and nut art, noodles, vegetable carving, interesting display of food. Remember the food item will be out in the elements throughout the day so consider the best materials that can withstand the exposure. Ice cream displays would not work.

Speaking of sustainable - notice that Shoreline was a lot cooler than other parts of the greater Seattle area? Tall trees help keep homes cool, without having to resort to using energy for cooling. Do you really thing ripping up our City to build concrete boxes with scrawny deciduous trees in planters to make up for the loss of tree canopy is going to make us more environmentally sustainable? Think again! The City's recent approved tree list for the right of ways is restricted to short or medium height trees that are slow growers. Light Rail Subareas, the Dog Leg, 145th St and 185th St Corridors from border to City border, prepare for mass destruction of old trees and add several degrees to how hot it was in your neighborhoods today. Also, Sound Transit will be doing major tree removal for the light rail line. Are they required to replace the trees they destroy? Who knows?!?!?!
