Patch Staff Report
This year’s theme is “Grow Your Own Way,” which highlights the diversity of the people, places and goods farmers markets represent.
Atlanta high school students are invited to use their creativity to show what Peachtree Road Farmers Market, and this year’s theme, means to them. Ideas can be inspired from farming, Atlanta landmarks, images from the farmers market and everything in between.
The student with the winning design will receive a $1,000 scholarship. In addition, his or her artwork will be showcased on thousands of reusable canvas bags distributed to farmers market shoppers throughout the season. The bag contest will supplement initiatives to reduce waste and promote recycling.
Two runners-up will receive a $500 scholarship and have their designs featured at the unveiling ceremony.
The winning designs will be unveiled at Peachtree Road Farmers Market on April 26. All three finalists will be invited to attend.
All participants must submit their entries by Friday, March 14, 2014 at 12:00 pm EDT to Peachtree Road Farmers Market office at 2744 Peachtree Rd, Atlanta, GA 30305.
