On Friday, Sep. 6 2013, the ninth annual Battle of the Bins competition was held on the Hollins University campus. This annual competition allows students and other members of the Hollins community decorate recycling bins to be used around campus and have the chance to win a cash prize. The contest itself received lots of support from the Hollins community, from Bill St. Clair and the paint shop, to Jesse Freedman who hauled water, to Mike Smith and Eric Ferguson who distributed bins. Hollins University President Nancy Oliver Gray, Theatre Director Ernie Zulia and Assistant Professor of Art Elise Schweitzer judged the Battle of the Bins contest.
The awards were broken down like this:
1st place: Noell Ware with the help of Angie, Kelly, Mackenzie, and Veronica
2nd place: Molly Budd and Beth Winslow
