Want to win $200 cash, $50 in market bucks, and a free t-shirt? Here’s your chance!

Sprout needs some new swag.

Sprout is awarding four winners with prize money in a t-shirt design contest. The t-shirt designs are meant to intrigue interest in local food, local art, cultural diversity, and placemaking. Designs will be printed on Sprout-wear to help spread the word about Sprout’s mission and attract guests to the food and art facility in Little Falls. Four new t-shirts will be unveiled this fall, for sale to the public at the first autumn market on October 28th.

Minnesota residents within 100 miles of the Sprout Growers & Makers Marketplace, and residents within Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and Wadena counties are encouraged to submit entries.

Preference will be given to designs which embody the variety of cultures in our region, specifically Amish, Latino, Somali, Tribal, Growers and Youth, which could also include the use of multi-languages.

Here are a couple of entries. As more come in, we’ll post them here!
