Let Me Introduce Some Very Talented Junker's in TrainingJanuary 27th, 2010 in blog
I had the honor and the pleasure of being a guest speaker in Amy's class last year and to see first hand some of the cool things her students were doing with junk. The college students of today are very well educated on the need to recycle and re-use (thanks to people like Amy) and have a youthful twist on re-purpose that I find both refreshing and inspirational. This year, the Minnesota winter got the best of me and I was unable to make the trek to Duluth. Yes, somtimes the weather is too bad even for the most seasoned and adventurous of junkers. Ha! Any hoo, in place of speaking I was assigned the duty of picking the top "4" of the students projects. This was no easy task because they were all fabulous. So Environmental Health class of 2009.....you are all winners! Thanks for taking the time to learn about junking and sharing your creations with me and the entire JMS community.
Their assignment was to research the JMS site and find three posts that inspired them. After that they were asked to find something about their living quarters or go out junking to find something that was ripe for re-purpose. The final task was to actually transform their piece of junk into something wonderful. Attached are images of four of Amy's students and their works of art. I think you'll all agree with me that they should all get an "A" for absolutely fabulous projects.
