Design contest looking for artists

Sprout, the organization which coordinates Farm-to-School for six Central Minnesota school districts, is looking for folks within 100 miles of Little Falls to help design four new T-shirts. All ages are encouraged to enter the contest. The T-shirt designs are meant to intrigue interest in local food, local art, cultural diversity and placemaking. Designs will be printed on Sprout-wear to help spread the word about Sprout’s mission and attract guests to the food and art facility in Little Falls. Preference will be given to designs which embody the variety of cultures in our region, specifically Amish, Latino, Somali, Tribal, Growers and Youth, which could also include the use of multi-languages. The winning designs and the four new T-shirts will be unveiled this fall, for sale to the public at the first autumn market on Oct. 28. The winner will receive $200 cash, $50 in market bucks and a free T-shirt with their winning design. The contest began Aug. 23. Show off your local artistic talent.[...]   Read More -->
