Prize Update: Due to the spread of COVID-19, all physical contest prizes (including prize packs) will be replaced with equivalent-value digital gift cards. Prize values are noted in the official rules. For more information, please see COVID-19 Adjustments to Instructables Contest Prizes.
Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Feb 10, 2020 and Apr 6, 2020 (11:59pm PT).
Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Trash to Treasure Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.
Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
