We’re pleased to announce Claire Menzer (of Audubon Elementary) and Karissa Orlob (of Garfield Elementary) as our two winners in the first-ever poster contest for the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market!
Their drawings will be featured on this year’s promotional materials for the market, such as posters and flyers. The two of them will also each be awarded $15 in market tokens at the opening market on Friday, June 6.
Claire and Karissa had some fierce competition from their schoolmates. Some entries had colorful and clever depictions of Garfield the cat surrounded by produce, and nearly all of the drawings took real pleasure in showcasing the wide range of fruit and vegetables that you’d expect to see from a farmers market — including some very exotic ones like mangoes.
Our sincere thanks to every student who took part! We hope that all the participants and their families will make it to the market this season so we can thank them in person.
