Drink it. Think it. Make it. Win it.

The Made By Milk™ contest encourages students to build strong bones with milk and flex their creative muscles by repurposing milk cartons. The winning team can earn its school up to $5,000.Just collect your school’s milk cartons and use at least 100 of them intact to create a piece of art that fits the semesters’ theme

Assemble your team of students (suggestions: an art class, a home room, etc.), and determine what you’d like to build. Then gather supplies, assign tasks to students and make it!

After your students assemble their creation, snap a few photographs of the finished product (without students in the photo) and write an essay (200 or fewer words) about how your school would use the $5,000 if it won. Hint: You can earn extra points if your school plans to use award money for a green project.

You will need the photos and essay to complete the entry form.

Then your school’s sponsor uploads the entry to our website by the specified date. Sponsor must be 18 years or older.

There are two ways to win:

  • Get the most people to vote for your school’s entry to win the “People’s Choice” category
  • Impress the panel of judges
