The Buena View Federated Garden Club of Storm Lake invites first through fifth grade students to participate in the National Garden Club, Inc. 2004 Smokey Bear Poster Contest.
Tips and rules for posters: a good poster is bold and simple in design, should be based upon Smokey Bear's birthday theme, "Sixty Years of Vigilance," its message should be delivered in both the picture and the slogan and should be easily understood.
Each poster should be 12x18 inches in size, use bold colors and be done by individual student artists. Posters will be judged 20 percent each for originality, design, slogan, artwork and overall effectiveness of message.
No three-dimensional poster, computer-scanned or electronically generated images will be accepted.
Please print the artist's name, address, home phone number, grade level, school, city and state on the back of the poster in the lower right corner.
Submit entries by Friday, Dec. 5 in the Smokey Bear Box at the Storm Lake Public Library. Any questions, call 732-5366 or 732-1285.
