Mayor's 1st Young Inventor Challenge

On May 31, 2008, twelve competitors gathered at Timken High School to showcase their inventions made from the four recyclable materials accepted in the Canton Curbside Recycling program - Paper, Plastic, Metal, and Glass.

Students from middle school grades up through high school competed in the competition, which was sponsored by the Mayor's Office, Wal-Mart, OfficeMax Impress Document Services, Hub Victor Trophy Company, ArtsInStark, and the Canton Chamber of Commerce.

Congratulations go out to first place winners Paul Hovan and Josh Bankert, who each won $500 gift cards from Wal-Mart!

Congratulations also go out to second place winner Theresa Rinehard and third place winner Blake Hersberger for their recycling-themed inventions!
