The Transcona BIZ was proud to once again host the Festival of Banners design contest! This fantastic project recognizes the artistic talent that exists in the Transcona community and strengthens the partnerships between local schools and the business community.
Forty two students were selected to paint their designs on large banners which are displayed in the community for the year. The Transcona BIZ, awarded certificates and cash prizes to the students who created the top three designs in each of the age categories.
The theme for this year was “There’s No Place Like Home”. Students were invited to use their ingenuity to create an aesthetically appealing design which displays their favourite reasons home is great in Transcona.”
A panel of judges selected forty-two banners with representation from each of the Early Years (K-5), Middle Years (6-8) and Senior Years (9-12) categories. The talented artists whose designs were chosen painted their design with exterior acrylic paint donated by The Lumber Zone on 29”x 74” vinyl banners.
