2018 Winter Banners Entry

We need your help finding local budding artists!

Once again, the Richmond Village Association Inc. will be organizing “Lighting of the Park” on Saturday December 8th, 2018 at 4:30 pm followed by the Annual Santa Claus Parade scheduled for 5:30 pm and chili dinner.

In celebration of Richmond’s 200th Anniversary, we are looking for local young residents to design new banners to display from the street posts around the village. The winning artists, their families and friends are all invited to paint the final rendition onto the large flags at the Richmond Arena.

The Contest asks our young artists to design a winter theme that celebrates our village and reflects the winter season. Entry forms can be picked up and dropped off at King’s Your Independent Grocer or returned to the school your child received it from. We will be choosing a number of entries from multiple age groups. Children between the ages of 4 to12 are encouraged to participate! .

Submissions will be picked up on October 26, 2018.

Winning artists will receive an email the week of October 30th, 2018. The email will specify what time the winner and their family and friends will be scheduled to paint their banner. All winning designs will have been transferred to the large flags and the paint supplies will be ready to go!

Thank you for your participation and we look forward to seeing everyone on December 8th as the new Richmond Village banners are unveiled!

The Richmond Village Association Inc. would also like to thank Golden Triangle Signs, King’s YIG, as well as our many other wonderful sponsors for their support to make this event a success.

Happy Holidays to All,
