Trash to Treasure: Making Waste Viable

A best-out-of-waste contest for teens


IGenPlus gives teenagers across the globe an opportunity to flex their creative muscles and become conscious consumers – all you need is some trash. In the ‘Trash to Treasure’ challenge, students will recycle and reuse materials that otherwise go to waste. Best of all, they will create something functional and aesthetic with little financial investment. There is no specific theme for the submissions, so students can explore and design anything they want. 

The competition will act as a medium of practicing creative skills, out-of-the-box thinking, design thinking and sustainability. In the process, participants will also enhance their problem-solving and artistic potential.


This online contest urges teenagers across the globe to find, think, and innovate. It will help students engage in the following activities:
  • Look for things around the hose that are no longer in use
  • Transform waste materials into something valuable
  • Recycle, upcycle, and contribute to the environment

Imagine transforming the material from your recycling bin into the next big thing, and winning prizes worth INR 6,000 for your innovation!
