Time to whip out those art skills! The St. John Valley is having a banner contest.

CMA 2014

The 'Design your Own' Banner contest is meant to build unity and community spirit throughout the St. John Valley as part of the 2014 World Acadian Congress.

Banner kits along with instructions can be purchased at local town offices. Those who enter will have the option of designing a banner for the community or for their own home or business. Entrants also have the option of either participating in the local banner contest or the Valley-wide competition.

Banners will be on display in each town until August 3, 2014. The town of Madawaska will collect the banners entered into the Valley-wide competition and judge them on Acadian Day, August 15, 2014 during the Concert Celebration in Madawaska at the Madawaska Multi-Purpose Building.
