Please join us as we, along with COUNTRY Financial, announce the winning entry and two runners up on June 8 at the PSU Farmers Market.
The theme for the 9th annual Portland Farmers Market Reusable Bag Design Contest is “Growing a Green Future,” and students were encouraged to incorporate imagery familiar to the City of Portland and the market such as fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and more. The designs had to match the theme and include “2019 Portland Farmers Market” in the imagery. The reusable bag contest not only awards local students with a financial start to their future, but also supports important environmental initiatives such as reducing waste, promoting recycling and creativity.
First place wins the honor of having their artwork printed on hundreds of reusable bags and receives a $2,000 scholarship from COUNTRY Financial. The runner up will receive a $1,000 scholarship and the second runner up will receive a $500 scholarship, and both will have their designs on display at the unveiling event.
