Pagosa students eligible for historic preservation poster contest

Special to The PREVIEW

The Town’s Historic Preservation Board (HPB) is hosting the annual Historic Preservation Month poster contest for local youth.

The HPB encourages all Pagosa Springs students — in public and private schools, and home schooled — to enter artwork under the theme, “Celebrating Pagosa Springs Cultural Heritage.”

Submissions will be judged in three categories: high school, junior high/middle school, and elementary and younger. Prizes of $50 will be awarded to first place in each category with additional prizes awarded for second and third place winners in each category.

All entries should address the “Celebrating Pagosa Springs Cultural Heritage” theme with original artwork using any media, including photography, and should be submitted as an 8.5×11 entry.

Submit artwork at the front desk at Town Hall, 551 Hot Springs Blvd., by Friday, April 26, at 5 p.m. Do not sign your artwork, but provide your name, school grade, phone number and mailing address on a separate piece of paper, so the Historic Preservation Board can conduct an anonymous judging. Artwork will be coded when submitted so that contact information can be accessed after the judging.

The Pagosa Springs Historic Preservation Month artwork poster contest celebrates our shared cultural history and heritage. Winning artwork will be published and displayed.

If you have questions, contact the Town Planning Department at 264-4151, Ext. 225. Winners will be announced on May 11, and all entries will be displayed during Historic Preservation Month in Town Hall.
