Opening Day and Reusable Bag Design Contest
Join us on April 5th from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm for opening day! PRFM also welcomes back the second annual Reusable Bag Design Contest, calling all students to submit designs for this year’s market totes by Friday, March 14.
In partnership with the Peachtree Road Farmers Market, COUNTRY Financial is excited to announce the second annual Peachtree Road Farmers Market Reusable Bag Design Contest. The competition presents an opportunity for students to showcase their talent on reusable shopping bags that will be distributed at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market throughout the season.
This year’s theme is “Grow Your Own Way.” Students are asked to include imagery inspired by the spring/summer season and the corresponding regional market goods, such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc. We also ask participants to illustrate the spirit of the city. Designs must include the words “2014 Peachtree Road Farmers Market.”
The reusable shopping bags are part of the Peachtree Road Farmers Market initiative to promote healthy, environmentally friendly communities. Thousands of farmers market attendees will receive these custom designed tote bags this season, free of charge.
The student who submits the winning design will receive a $1,000 scholarship and the opportunity to have his/her artwork displayed on reusable shopping bags distributed throughout the city. Additionally, two runners-up will each receive a $500 scholarship. These designs will be unveiled on April 26 at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market, and the three finalists will be invited to attend.
Download the entry form and full contest instructions and official rules here. Entries must be submitted to the address below by Friday, March 14 at 4 p.m. EDT. If the entry is being sent by mail, please allow sufficient time for delivery by due date. If received after the deadline, there is no guarantee the artwork will be eligible. Winners will be notified through their schools or via phone/email the week of March 17.
