The North Dakota Air National will host the first ever 'Trash to Treasure' art event at the 119th Wing on Sunday from 3-5 p.m.

Children of Air Guard members will bring trash and other recycled items from home to create unique works of art to be entered in a national contest sponsored by the National Guard Bureau in Arlington, Va.

"The goal of the program is to enable children to be creative and promote the positives of recycling," said Jody Harms, 119th Wing Family Programs Coordinator.

"Plus, it is always fun to see just how creative children can be. I'm excited to see what they come up with."

Photos will be taken of the finished artwork to be judged in separate categories in the national contest. Categories will be grouped by age: kindergarten to 2nd Grade, 3rd to 5th grade, 6th to 8th grade and 9th to 12th grade.

Media is invited to attend this event. Please contact Capt. Penny Ripperger, 119th Wing Public Affairs Officer, at 701-451-2194 to arrange a media escort on base.
