Kara Hackett - The Journal Gazette
The Journal Gazette's social media writer Kara Hackett made these newspaper coasters using The JG to demonstrate a photo entry for the Recycle JG contest. Participants can use any supplies to make their crafts as long as they incorporate The JG.

Newspaper crafts, anyone?

Newspaper crafts, anyone? Show us how you recycle The JG, and the most creative, environment-friendly submission will win a $50 gift card to Casa Restaurants or Carmike Cinemas as well as a story in The JG.

Here's how it works:

• Get a copy of The JG, and recycle it in a creative way.

• Take picture of your recycled newspaper creation.

• Submit photos via email to or via Twitter or Instagram using #recyclejg

All submissions must be emailed or posted by midnight on Sunday, Dec. 8. We'll feature some submissions on our Facebook page throughout the contest, and the winner will be named the second week of December.

We look forward to seeing how you repurpose your paper. The contest starts now, so get crafting!


Participants can use any supplies to make crafts, but they must incorporate The JG in their creation.

Decisions of the judges are final.

If more than one person submits the same idea, the first one is the winner. Click here to see our entries so far.

PRIZES: The first place winner gets his/her choice of a $50 Casa gift card or a $50 Carmike gift card. The second place winner gets the prize the first place winner doesn't choose. The next five honorable mentions will be posted in a photo gallery on our website.
