ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A water recycling concrete toilet tank top took top honors in 2016 and a floating concrete ghost table landed first prize in 2017, so anticipation is high for the 2018 QUIKRETE® One Bag Wonder contest entries. QUIKRETE®, the leading manufacturer of packaged concrete, will award the three most creative, well-crafted and high-quality DIY projects entered into the annual QUIKRETE® One Bag Wonder contest monetary prizes and a trip to Charleston, S.C. for the Haven Conference.
“We’ve been blown away by the QUIKRETE® One Bag Wonder projects the past two years and look forward to more of the same this year,” said Frank Owens, Vice President of Marketing for The QUIKRETE® Companies. “The vision people have for transforming a single bag of QUIKRETE® into beautiful, functional pieces of furniture, decorations and other home improvement projects is inspirational. We want to spread that inspiration, so we’re sharing the winning projects with the country’s leading DIY bloggers at the Haven Conference. Using concrete for DIY projects continues to grow in popularity and the QUIKRETE® One Bag Wonder contest is proof of this movement.”
From April 28 through June 4, DIY projects created with one bag of any QUIKRETE® concrete mix can be entered by emailing three photos or a video with a 200-word description that includes the inspiration and step-by-step instructions to 1BagWonder@quikrete.com or by posting the same information on social media with #QUIKRETE1BagWonder. QUIKRETE® will be joined by the Home Projects Council, a think tank of home improvement experts, in judging the projects based on creativity, craftsmanship and quality. The winners will be announced on June 11 with first place receiving $2,500, second place $1,500 and third place $500. Winners will also receive airfare and hotel accommodations to Charleston, S.C. for the Haven Conference from July 12-14 where their projects will be exhibited by QUIKRETE®.
Past QUIKRETE® One Bag Wonder winners and other project submissions are available in the 2016 Concrete Coffee Table Book and 2017 Concrete Coffee Table Book. Visit www.QUIKRETE.com or the QUIKRETE® Facebook page for more details, product information and project inspiration.
