Market Poster Contest 2015

The Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is holding its second annual poster contest for students in neighborhood schools. This year the schools that have been invited to take part are Trinity Catholic School and Spokane Public Montessori.

Students in grades 1–6 at these schools are asked to design a poster for the upcoming 2015 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 “neighborhood farmers market

The deadline is Friday, May 8. Two winning entries — one from each school — will be selected and announced by Monday, May 11. 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 2015 market season to help promote the market. They will also be posted on 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 5 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.

Trinity and Montessori students, please check with your respective school office to see where you should submit your entries. We look forward to seeing what you create!
