$1,500 up for grabs in design contest

The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation is taking entries from Idaho artists hoping to design the next stage backdrop for one of its initiatives, The ED Sessions. The winning entry will be compensated $1,500.

The winning design will represent four themes: Idaho, education, youth and quality of Idaho life. Design, color palette, look and feel are completely up to the artist.

Sketches are due to the Albertson Foundation by 8 a.m., July 25. Once selected, final art of the winning design is due Aug. 20. The final design — 11 feet wide by 9 feet tall — must be digitally transferrable.

The ED Sessions is a monthly education speaker series hosted by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation.

Email designs with your name, company name if applicable and phone number, to Albertson Foundation Communications Specialist Nick Groff at [email protected].

Disclosure: Idaho Education News is funded by a grant from the J.A. and Kathryn Alberston Foundation.
