Sesquicentennial Flag Design Contest
Seeking Local Artwork – See Your Designs on Display and Win $500.00
The Town of Prosperity is launching our Sesquicentennial Flag Design Contest to continue with the implementation of public artwork throughout our charming downtown streetscape and to celebrate our 150th Birthday!
This contest will recognize the unique talents of the many creative folks throughout our local community while also continuing with the beautification of our beloved Town Square. The winner of the contest will get to see their artwork proudly displayed atop the flag pole in the square, town hall, and town center.
Along with the $500.00 prize, you will be recognized and presented with a commemorative flag at this year’s Holiday Shoppers Walk. In addition, all submitted entries will be printed to a reduced scale and showcased in a curated small works display in the gallery at Town Hall, as well as be recognized on both our website and Facebook page.
Please read the below information carefully before making a submission, and if you have any questions – feel free to send us an email at email@example.com or give us a call at 803-364-2622.
Theme: Government, Frog Level, Prosperity, Historic, Celebration
There’s something about living in a small town that just can’t be beat! What are some of the things that you love about Prosperity that are unlike anywhere else? Are there any types of landmarks (past or present / structural or natural) that are an important part of what makes Prosperity unique? Is there a certain object or defining characteristic about Prosperity where every time you see it (no matter where you are) it always evokes a happy memory or reminds you of home? While the theme is open to interpretation, these are just a few starting questions to help spark inspiration.
