Show off your best image of Florida’s colorful native blooms in the Florida Wildflower Festival Art Contest presented by the River of Lakes Heritage Corridor. The art contest is held in conjunction with the third annual Florida Wildflower Festival, which will be held on Saturday, March 28, 2009 on West Indiana Avenue in Downtown DeLand. Originally having a Volusia County focus, the festival is gradually expanding into a statewide celebration and a forum to encourage wildflower propagation both commercially and residentially. The atmosphere is lively with family-friendly programs, hands-on demonstrations, children's activities, entertainment, field trips and wildflower products for sale. The festival is free and open to the public. The first-place contestant will receive a cash prize of $500, and will be featured on this year’s festival poster, t-shirt and note cards. The second- and third-place winners will also receive cash prizes and be featured on event merchandise. Applications with detailed artwork specifications and submission requirements may be downloaded at our website www.FloridaWildflowerFestival.com or requested by calling or emailing our office at 386-734-0162; jessi@river-of-lakes.com. Submission deadline: January 23rd See Contest Rules for complete submission requirements
