Hello everyone and Happy New Year! We are starting out with a bang and are asking for your help. You can help create an Archive Library by sending in your memories in a questionnaire that we have designed to preserve the history of the Co-op. Take a minute and read all about it and then complete the questionnaire- email or snail mail either way is fine. Click on the link below
Calling all young artists
Every year we receive a number of logo entries from some very talented young artists! While these designs aren’t quite what we need for the posters and OfficialT-shirts, we wanted to give these aspiring artists a chance to show off their artistic talent, and their Hiawatha Spirit!
So this year for Festival 2014, we are going to accept submissions for a children’s T-shirt contest. The contest will be open to children ages 5-12. The winning design will be printed in black ink on a white shirt, and can be purchased at the festival for $5. Children who purchase a shirt will have the opportunity to add color to their shirt in the Children’s Area.
Submission Guidelines For The Children’s T-shirt Contest
*Artists must be between the ages of 5 and 12.
*We will accept line drawings only.
*The image must be clear and easy to identify.
*All work must be original and created by the child artist. Image should represent the Hiawatha experience, such as the music, the surroundings, family fun, etc.
Deadline is April 30th. Winner will receive a cash prize, and other yet to be determined “stuffs”.
