  3. Cross your fingers and hope to win!

At the end of the contest, a committee will judge the entries on originality, creativity, and interpretation of the theme to choose the grand prize winner. That winner will receive $500!!!

The winning entry will also be printed on a poster and sold at the Sugar Creek Arts Festival – happening in Uptown Normal on October 9-10, 2021. Poster sales will benefit the McLean County Arts Center.
