Farmers Market Announces Annual Poster Contest for K-5 Students
Theme is “Life is Best … When It’s Farm Fresh”
The Columbus County Community Farmers Market is sponsoring the seventh annual poster contest for all public and private school students (including home schooled students), kindergarten through 5th grade, in Columbus County.
"The theme for this year’s poster contest is ‘Life is Best … When It’s Farm Fresh,’” said Kip Godwin, marketing consultant for the Farmers Market, "This theme is intended to remind everyone of the importance of eating more farm fresh fruits and vegetables and being more physically active.” The contest is sponsored by Columbus Regional Healthcare System.
Primary and elementary school students are encouraged to create a poster that effectively highlights the importance of choosing good nutrition, regular exercise, and healthy activities and how farms, farmers, and the farmers market support and promote better health for the residents of Columbus County.
The overall winner will receive a Farmers Market t-shirt and a $50 gift certificate. One winner in each other grade level will receive a $25 gift certificate. Gift certificates are redeemable at the Columbus County Community Farmers Market during the 2014 season. In addition to the prizes, the overall poster contest winner will have his or her artwork incorporated into the official 2014 Farmers Market promotional poster and published in Farmers Market News magazine.
One new feature this year, the Columbus County Arts Council, a partner in the project, will provide a $50 gift certificate to the teacher of the overall poster contest winner.
