The Westborough Civic Club is hosting a contest for Mill Pond students to create the artwork for this year’s Fishing Challenge poster and t-shirt. Enter your drawing by April 8th to Mrs. Kohler at Mill Pond School. Your design could be all over town! Get drawing! (Try to limit drawing to 3 colors.) Watch this video or read below for all the details.
2016 will be the ninth year that the Westborough Civic Club has held the Fishing Challenge, which is open to all ages. Each year, the Civic Club publicizes the event by producing posters to be put up throughout the town – and on the day of the event, hundreds of free T-shirts are given away on a first-come basis.
This year, the Civic Club is inviting all interested Mill Pond School students to take part in a contest to design original artwork for the posters and the T-shirts for them. The winning design will be used at this year’s Spring Festival Fishing Challenge which will take place on the morning of Saturday, May 7th.
Your artwork should be colorful and fun but you should try to limit the colors used to three at most, as this affects the cost of printing the finished design! Your original design might be slightly changed to meet the requirements of the printer and the shirt manufacturer.
It will need to be submitted to Mrs. Kohler, in the Mill Pond School Library, no later than end of school, on Friday, April 8th. Be sure to include your first and last name, and homeroom, with your art.
The posters and shirts seen in this video are examples of past designs. Prizes will be given for the first, second, and third place winners.
Remember, all students are invited to this year’s fishing challenge at Minuteman Park on Upton Road. Registration is completely free, and includes a chance to win Prizes which are awarded in each of three age categories for the longest fish caught. Fishing starts at 9:00 a.m. and continues until 1:00 p.m. You should bring your fishing rod and tackle with you — but equipment will be provided for anyone needing it, and worms will be available as bait.
The Westborough Civic Club is made up of people who take part in activities that benefit the Town of Westborough and its residents. Perhaps you have seen the Christmas tree sale on East Main Street each year following Thanksgiving? Those trees are sold by the Civic Club and the money they raise goes to charitable causes in town.
Good luck to Mill Pond students with your posters and T-shirt designs, and best of luck fishing, too!
