Pottawattamie County Conservation Calls Artists to Submit County Park T-Shirt Designs

This blog contains information about a contest that has passed. Please visit Pottawattamie Conservation's website for the latest news and happenings! 

Pottawattamie County Conservation is asking artists of all ages to share their most awesome Pottawattamie County park-themed t-shirt designs for a chance to have their creations featured on apparel that will support local conservation projects and park improvements. Winners will also receive an annual park membership, a free cabin stay, one lift ticket to Mt. Crescent Ski Area, and a t-shirt featuring their design.

“If you love your county parks and have an artistic flair, this is your opportunity to take that passion and use it to inspire others for a good cause,” Pottawattamie County Conservation promotions and outreach coordinator Kylie Jacott said. “Residents and visitors know our county parks the best, and that’s why we’re inviting them to take the lead on this and create what they want to see.”
