Artists invited to submit button designs

The Park Rapids Downtown Business Association (PRDBA) is sponsoring a 2nd Street Stage button design contest with a $250 cash prize to the winner.

Those who purchase and wear the $20 buttons for this season’s 10 2nd Street Stage events will be helping to sponsor this fun summer event and will receive $2 off beverages purchased at the beer garden all summer long. Buttons will be available for purchase at the beer garden on opening night June 15.

Please draw your design within a 4-inch circle. Designs must include “2023,” “2nd St Stage” and “Park Rapids, MN.” They may be full color or black and white with color accents.

Designs may be submitted on paper to the Park Rapids Downtown Business Association, P.O. Box 142, Park Rapids, MN 56470 or digitally as a pdf or jpg e-mailed to Submissions must be received by noon Wednesday, March 15.

Last year’s winner was Teresa Seegers of Park Rapids. It is the PRDBA’s intent to continue the button design contest annually and create buttons that will become collectibles.
