The Children’s Festival is an annual island-wide FREE event where over 30 community groups gather to celebrate children by providing entertaining, creative, interactive, educational and playful activities. It is supported by numerous businesses and organizations and is coordinated by Island Rec. Attention, young artists! Island Rec needs your help to design the poster for this year’s Children’s Festival! Kids of all ages are invited to submit poster designs that incorporate this year’s theme: Wild, Wild West!
Artwork must be submitted on an official entry form, which can be obtained at Island Rec’s office or at the Elementary School. Poster designs must be returned to Island Rec, 580 Guard Street, by 5pm Friday, March 21st, 2014 to be considered by our contest judges. In addition to the honor and title of “Official Poster Designer,” the First Place winner will receive a wildlife cruise for four with Western Prince Cruises. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd runners up will receive gift certificates to The Toy Box, Ositos, and A Place To Play. Enter for a chance to win!
The Children’s Festival is an entire community effort and is second only to the county fair in its scope of community participation and the number of people who attend and it is the commitment of the dedicated volunteers on the Children’s Festival Committee who bring the festival to life every year.
