HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County Republican Party Chairwoman Betsy Young announced Thursday evening during July’s monthy meeting that the GOP will sponsor an amateur art contest for students and adults, encompassing the theme of freedom. “There will be three different divisions, based on age,” Young said. “Division One, Middle School; Division Two, High School; and Division Three, Adult.”
The “Let Freedom Ring” art contest runs from July 18 through Sept. 10, 2019. The winners will be announced at the Towns County GOP meeting on Thursaday, Sept. 19 at 6 pm at the Towns County Civic Center. All artwork entries will be displayed at this time.
First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded to the winners in each of the three categories. Middle and high school students can submit their entries at no cost. A $25.00 non-refundable entry fee will be required from adult participants. All artists will receive a certificate of participation from the Towns County GOP.
All specialties of artwork will be accepted, including photography, drawing, painting, watercolor, and sculpture. The first place winners’ creations, from each division, will be displayed in the Towns County Courthouse following the completion of the contest.
