Banner competition for East St. Paul students
Posted: February 29, 2016
East St. Paul children and youth can help the community celebrate its centennial through a banner creation contest.
A panel of judges will select the 24 banners to be displayed, ensuring the three age groups are represented: Early Years (Kindergarten to Grade 5), Middle Years (Grades 6-8), and Senior Years (Grades 9-12). There will be cash prizes and certificates for the top three banners in three age categories.
Participating students should prepare their design on medium card stock sized four inches by 11 inches. Their submission needs to be finished art work. Simple designs with bright, bold, solid colours will work best, as the displayed banners will be placed high on poles. The theme of the competition is East St. Paul’s 100 th anniversary. Students are invited to use their creativity to illustrate the community’s history.
Each submission must have a completed and clearly printed registration form attached by tape to the back of the design. Those forms are available HERE
. All submissions become the property of the East St. Paul Centennial committee and will not be returned.
Those chosen art works will be made into 22 inch by 66 inch banners and displayed for a year throughout the community. The selected artists will then get to paint their designs directly on to the full-size vinyl banner. Those painting sessions will be scheduled for a later date.
Winners will be announced on July 1 at a special ceremony during East St. Paul’s Canada Day Celebrations.
To be eligible, all banner entries must be received by March 25. They may be sent to either Suzanne Ward at the R.M. of East St. Paul office, 1-3021 Birds Hill Rd., or Carol Ridd, Consultant for the Arts, River East Transcona School Division, 95 Bournais Dr. in Winnipeg.
