HANNIBAL | The Hannibal Arts Council and local partners are sponsoring a Masterpiece T-Shirt design contest for youth ages 5 to 12.

A limited number of official t-shirts and sizes will be available, and they will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. T-shirts may be picked up at the Hannibal Arts Council from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 10, or Wednesday, Aug. 12. Past Wild and Wacky Art Adventure participants were sent a postcard offering a special pick up date/time.

The contest will be held in place of the Wild and Wacky Art Adventure for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Youth participants are asked to design a t-shirt that is creative, imaginative and unique and then submit a digital image of their design via email. A cash award of $50 will be given in each of three age divisions and chosen by a panel of judges. An overall People's Choice Award of $25 will be chosen through a contest on the Hannibal Arts Council Facebook page.

To keep up to date, to vote for People's Choice and to learn who wins, like the Hannibal Arts Council on Facebook.

Sponsors for the Masterpiece T-Shirt design contest include Early Bird Kiwanis Club, Evening Kiwanis Club, Spalding Foundation, U.S. Bank Foundation, General Mills Hometown Grantmaking Program, George H. Riedel Private Foundation, James O'Donnell Funeral Home, Vickie Witthaus, Dr. Michael and Sherry Bukstein and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
