2nd Street Stage winning button design chosen

The Park Rapids Downtown Business Association (PRDBA) received dozens of entries for the third annual 2nd Street Stage button design contest.

The winner is Amy Gohman of Andover, a graphic artist and graduate of Bemidji State University.  She and her spouse own a cabin near Park Rapids and attend 2nd Street Stage at least a couple of times every summer.

Gohman received a $250 cash prize.

Those who purchase and wear the official 2019 button for this season’s 2nd Street Stage events help sponsor the fun summer concerts and will receive $2 off all beverages purchased at the beer garden. Buttons will be made and available for purchase at some Downtown businesses in May and at the beer garden when the season starts June 13.

It is the PRDBA’s intent to continue the button design contest annually and create buttons that will become collectibles.
