Kids-Only Festival T-Shirt Design Contest Deadline for submission is Monday, May 8th, 2023!

Every year we receive a number of Festival Poster and T-Shirt entries from some very talented young artists! While these designs aren’t quite what we need for the posters and Official T-Shirts, we wanted to give these aspiring artists a chance to show off their artistic talent, and their Hiawatha Spirit!

For the fourth year we are accepting submissions for Kids T-Shirt Design 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.  The Winner receives $50 cash and a free T-shirt.  

Submission Guidelines For The Kids 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.  Please use marker or ink.  Pencil drawings don't reproduce well. 
All work must be original and created  and completed by the child artist.  (Parents please refrain from helping!) The image should represent the Hiawatha experience, such as the music, the surroundings, and family fun!
