Market Poster Contest 2016

Parents of students at Audubon and Garfield Elementary,  please take note!

The Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is holding its third annual poster contest for students in neighborhood schools. Audubon Elementary and Garfield Elementary are the schools that have been invited to take part this year. A notice should have been distributed in the students’ Monday folders about two weeks ago.

Students in grades 1–6 at these schools are asked to design a poster for the upcoming 2016 market season.

The poster should:

  • be in color on white 8.5″ x 11″ (US letter-sized) paper; portrait or landscape style are both acceptable
  • contain the title: Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market — please make sure it’s properly spelled and punctuated!
  • illustrate the theme “community farmers market

The deadline is FridayMay 6. Two winning entries — one from each school — will be selected and announced by Monday, May 9. Students are asked to submit only one (1) entry per individual.

The winning entries will printed as posters and flyers. They will be hung throughout the neighborhood and around Spokane prior to and during the 2016 market season to help promote the market. They will also be posted on the market’s and/or Emerson-Garfield Neighborhood’s blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The two winners and their parent(s) or guardian will be asked to be present at the opening market on Friday, June 10 to be acknowledged in person. They will each receive a similar amount ($15 each) of tokens to be spent at the market.

More info about the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is available here on this website or on our Facebook page.

Students can check with their school office to see where they should submit your entries.

As always, we look forward to seeing what you create!
