Roswell Youth Day Official T-Shirt Design Contest

Post Date:06/21/2019 10:30 AM
The City of Roswell invites residents age 18 and under to help create a fun and unique official t-shirt design for the 69th Annual Frances McGahee Youth Day Parade. This year's parade theme is "Be someone's hero".

To enter the contest, applicants must be 18 years of age or under, a Roswell resident, and be able to create their own artwork (hand drawn or computer generated) without assistance.

Artwork requirements include:
  • No clip art; original artwork only (hand-drawn or digitally illustrated)
  • Black marker only (solid black ink if digitally designed)
  • Must incorporate this year's parade theme: Be Someone's Hero
  • High Resolution JPEG, PDF, or PNG
Deadline for the artwork is August 19, 2019. Artwork and waivers must be submitted to or hand delivered to the Recreation & Parks Department at 38 Hill, Suite 100.

The winner will receive 3 free Youth Day t-shirts and recognition at both the Youth Day Parade and a City Council Meeting.

The Youth Day Parade will take place on October 12, 2019. Youth Day has been a long-standing tradition in Roswell that began in 1950 when a group of parents decided to sponsor a parade and a day of activities to honor the youth of the city. In 1951, Mayor Ford Rucker proclaimed the second Saturday in October as "Roswell Youth Day," and each year the tradition grows stronger within the community. Roswell proudly carries on this tradition by inviting young residents to be a part of this special community celebration.

The contest info packet and entry form can be found here.
