The Center for Arts and Innovation is hosting a “trashion” show where students will model garments they’ve designed and made using materials that are at least 90 percent reused and recycled and are considered neither dangerous nor harmful. Examples of materials that can be used include food packaging and wrappers, electronic components, container lids, and construction materials. The second annual “trashion” show takes place at noon Thursday, April 6, in the atrium of the Havener Center.

Prizes include $5,000 to the winning team, with $2,500 and $1,250 awarded to the second- and third-place teams, respectively. The team that wins the people’s choice category will be awarded $500.
