Budding young artists looking to make their mark have a great opportunity to not only have their design featured on more than 1,000 t-shirts, they also could pocket a little cash. The Michigan Corn Growers Association is in need of an engine-revving design for its annual Ethanol Night at the Races T-shirt Design Contest!
The MCGA Ethanol Night at the Races event is an annual membership appreciation night for MCGA members and their families at Dixie Motor Speedway in Birch Run. Attendees enjoy a full night of food, fellowship and racing while celebrating Michigan's $223 million ethanol industry and the benefits of the American-made fuel. All Ethanol Night at the Races attendees receive a complimentary T-shirt.
MCGA membership is not required for the design contest and all interested artists who are Michigan residents and 21 years of age or younger are encouraged to enter. Designs must be racing, ethanol or field corn-related (not sweet corn) and must be no smaller than 6 by 8 inches and no larger than 12 by 14 inches. Entered designs must be hand-drawn or computer-generated and suitable for four-color screen printing onto a white T-shirt. Participating artists may submit only one design and all entries must be received at the Michigan Corn office by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 14.
The winning design, selected by the MCGA board, will be printed onto more than 1,000 T-shirts that will be distributed at the Ethanol Night at the Races event on Saturday, September 7. The artist of the winning selection will receive a $150 VISA gift card, a free T-shirt with their design, and two tickets to the racing event. For more information on this exciting opportunity, please visit www.micorn.org or call (888) 323.-6601 to obtain the complete contest rules and official contest entry form.
