A most creative contest took place this weekend as part of AMS, the Aruba Model Search, in its current 2009 edition. The event was sponsored by ECOTEC, the local trash removal and recycling company. All AMS participants were asked to come up with a costume made of 100% recycled materials. They were also required to show their creation on the runway, in full view of a live audience and a panel of judges, and accompany it with a pro-recycling slogan. The show took place at Tequila, downtown Oranjestad and yielded a bonanza of amazingly interesting looks. The kids participating in the contest showed great gifts of creativity from angels, to brides, to ballerinas and gladiators, all costumes were made out of trash. Â
