The Fishers Freedom Festival proudly announces the winners of the 2010 T-Shirt design contest.  Megan Lo from Hamilton Southeastern Junior High School will have her design on the front of the Festival T-Shirt.  Becca Elson from Fall Creek Intermediate School will have her design appear on the back of the Festival T-Shirt.  Winners receive a free T-Shirt bearing their design, a trophy, and will be featured in the Sunday, June 27th main parade. 
Applicants were required to be Hamilton Southeastern school district students in either elementary (K-4), intermediate (5-6), or junior high (7 – 8 ) schools.  Submitted designs had to include this year’s festival theme “Where Family and Fun Unite,” the title “2010 Fishers Freedom Festival,” and a maximum four colors.  No computer drawings were allowed.  All designs depict a patriotic theme.
A selection committee sorted through approximately 1,600 entries submitted by March 15th and looked for creativeness and color selection.  All designs also had to be easily reproduced into a T-Shirt. 

Fall Creek Intermediate was the school with the most submitted entries and will receive a total of $500 ($250 from the Fishers Arts Council and $250 from the Fishers Freedom Festival) for art supplies and a plaque for their efforts.  Fall Creek Intermediate submitted 427 entries which beat Thorpe Creek Elementary by four entries. 

The 2nd Annual Kiddie Run T-Shirt will bear the design of Molly Simmons of Fall Creek Intermediate School.  The Kiddie Run is the part of the 5K Event for children that kicks off the whole Fishers Freedom Festival on Saturday morning, June 26th. 
The Festival T-Shirt will be available for purchase during the Fishers Freedom Festival, in the Fishers Freedom Festival Office (8601 East 116th Street ) and off the Festival’s web site.  All sizes are $10.  Proceeds benefit future Fishers Freedom Festivals.
