Students from Benjamin N. Cardozo High School repurposed 1,250 milk cartons to recreate a scene from Alice in Wonderland for a national milk carton art contest.

Got Alice?

Students from Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Bayside won the grand prize of $5,000 in Evergreen Packaging’s Made by Milk Carton Construction Contest by using 1,250 recycled milk cartons to create a life-size theme set of Alice in Wonderland.

The project, entitled “Alice and Absolem’s Milk Made Hideaway,” beat out 98 entries from schools across the country. Teams were required to write a short essay on how the prize money would be used, and Cardozo plans to use the winnings to fund recycled art classes at the school.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Evergreen Packaging for the Alice and Absolem’s Milk Made Hideaway our students created,” said Yvette Bohlman, Cardozo’s sustainability coordinator. “The students put so much work and ingenuity into building their milk carton creation, and learned valuable eco-friendly practices, such as repurposing and recycling, that can be carried out in their everyday lives.”
