Thank you to all who submitted your artwork!
Purpose: To develop and create a mascot that represents the West Michigan Sports Commission and the community.
Why? As an organization that promotes West Michigan as a sports destination, we feel that the West Michigan Sports Commission can benefit by being represented at these events as well as community events through a mascot representative. A mascot is also a great way to interact with people of all ages.
There are 3 contests offered:
1) Youth (Grades K-8)
2) College/University (must be enrolled in a college or university when submitting final product)
3) Open (no age or education limitations)
Submitted Item: All entries in any of the categories will submit a drawing/rendering of their suggested mascot for the West Michigan Sports Commission.
Contest Prizes & Judging: The following prizes will be awarded in each category: the first-place prize is a $100 gift card to MC Sports, and the second-place prize is a $50 gift card to Hobby Lobby. The judges will consist of a panel from the West Michigan Sports Commission Staff and Board Members.
All submissions are due no later than March 1, 2013 by 5:00PM.
