Oxford Holiday Committee’s eighth annual Recycled Holiday Ornament contest - 2011
The Oxford Holiday Committee’s eighth annual Recycled Holiday Ornament contest winners were announced by the honorable Oxford Village Mayor, Terry Stark at the Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 27, 2011. All 51 ornament entries from 26 Oxford Academy Primary School students are considered winners, and received Certificates of Recognition as a show of gratitude; however, place awards in each grade were selected.
Gift certificate prizes were from Oxford merchants - Big Blue/Valero for a two-topping pizza, the Oxford Coffee House for hot chocolates topped with whipped cream, and Hoppie’s ice cream parlor for small ice cream sundaes. In addition, the DEC donated pencils made of recycled newspaper, keepsake mugs of recycled material, NY Recycles 2012 calendars and ecology activity books for prizes.

Don’t miss seeing these Recycled Holiday Ornaments on display for the month of December in the window of 6 On The Square (6OTS), a performing arts center and gallery in Oxford at 6 LaFayette Park. Also in the window is the Oxford high school students’ “junk” sculpture to celebrate Oxford Recycles Month. Participating in the same spirit are the Oxford Head Start students whose ornaments are on display in their classroom.
The Holiday Committee gives a very big thank you to Village Mayor Stark who proclaimed November as Oxford Recycles Month, to the DEC for giving this contest statewide recognition, to the supportive Oxford businesses: Woollybear Web, 6OTS, Hoppies, The Oxford Coffee Shop, and Big Blue, to all the students, and to principal, Ms. Laytham, art teachers Katie Thomas and Joni Eaton and to the teachers and parents for all their support. Thank you all for making this such a success!
