Unnatural Resources Fair coming
Thursday, January 10, 2019
The 27th Annual Eastern Carolina Unnatural Resources Fair is coming Feb. 1-3 with your support. If our residents weren’t creative and enjoyed entering, we wouldn’t have a fair.
In 26 years, we have had approximately 10,000 creative entries recreating our used resources. The fair is up to all of us and your entries. All we can do is plan the fair. It is an inexpensive way to make things that you need and learn new skills.
Anyone can enter from kindergarten to senior citizens living east of I-95. The categories are science, math, art, music, physical education, language arts, history/social studies, toys, tools and miscellaneous. All entries win a ribbons, and the first place winners also get a trophy or medallion. If you make it, we have a place for it.
The fair is free to enter and free to visit. It is the only one of its kind in the U.S. that covers so many subjects. Go to www.unnaturalresources.org for a flier, examples, rules, sponsorships and booths. If you have questions, just call 252-355-1039 or email me at email@example.com.
North Carolina throws away enough resources to go around the world twice each year, and 80 percent can be reused or composted. We can always use more sponsors to grow. Hope to see you at the fair.
