The Putnam County Convention and Visitor's Bureau is once again sponsoring this event and encouraging not just youth, but anyone interested to come out and show off their artistic skills.
"It's a neat thing for the kids to have fun at," said Convention and Visitors Bureau assistant director Sharon Eiteljorge. "I can't get over how talented everyone is. Every year, it gets better."
Registration begins at 8 a.m., and participants will have until 2 p.m.t o complete their drawings. Entrants will be assigned an 8' x 8' spot upon registering.
Prizes will be award for most original, most lifelike and people's choice. Most original and most lifelike will be judged at 2 p.m. People's choice is determined by the amount of change in each participant's voting can as of noon.
All money will be donated to "Return-A-Gift," which enables families with children to share a dream for a merry Christmas.
The first 50 registrants will receive event T-shirts. Additionally, Bright Futures will be providing chalk, and McDonald's will provide bottled water. The day will also include prize drawings.
