Winning Design Goes on Race T-Shirt!

News Release from the Kentlands Community Foundation:
Kids of all ages (up to 18) are invited to send in a drawing for an art contest sponsored by the Kentlands Community Foundation. The winning design will go on the official race T-shirt for the Kentlands/Lakelands 5K and Kid’s Fun Run, hosted in partnership with the City of Gaithersburg.  The winning artist will also receive a $50 cash prize and be recognized on stage the day of the race, September 5th.

There will also be $25 cash prizes for the winner of each of the following age groups: 5 yrs. & under, 6-8 yrs, 9-11 yrs, 12-15 yrs, and 16-18 yrs.  In addition, ALL entries will be displayed at the post-race expo!  You don’t have to live in Kentlands or Lakelands to enter.

Contest Instructions

We are looking for designs that illustrate or show: how running or walking in the Race is good/healthy for people, good for our community spirit and good for the Earth and/or environment. For example, pictures showing runners & walkers helping neighbors, recycling, walking vs. driving, and/or planting trees in our community would all be acceptable.

All drawings must be received by Monday, June 8, 2009.  Drawings must be in marker (up to 4 colors – think bright colors!) on 8 ½ X 11 inch white paper.  The artist’s name, address, age and phone number must be printed on the back of the drawing. If a drawing does not include this information it will not be included in the contest judging.

Drawings can be mailed to: 5K T-Shirt Contest, Kentlands Community Foundation, 267 Kentlands Blvd, P.M.B. 200, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878 OR you may drop off your designs in the Kentlands Community Foundation’s mailbox at the Kentlands Clubhouse.  Judging will take place in June and the winners will be announced in July.
