For the second year in a row, Oak Brook Park District is inviting aspiring young artists to design the cover of its Summer Camp & Aquatics Guide.
The winning submission will be published on the front of the 2013 guide and the artist will win an Aquatic Splash Party for 20 guests at the district's Family Aquatic Center.
Submissions should integrate the phrase 2013 Camp & Aquatics Guide and incorporate the park district's website, www.obparks.org. A full submission packet, including rules, guidelines and a template, is available to download at the park district's website.
Submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Oak Brook Park District Family Recreation Center, 1450 Forest Gate Road, or electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org. Designs will be judged on relevant content, color and composition. The winning design will be chosen by a park district panel and all submissions will be on display at the Family Recreation Center beginning Feb. 4.
All participants are invited to attend the Oak Brook Park District's Dive In Movie presentation of "Despicable Me" at the Family Aquatic Center Feb. 8 for free.
Any student in grades K-8 may enter, but only Oak Brook residents are eligible to win. Entries must be produced and submitted by individual applicants. The winner will be chosen by Feb 6.
The park district introduced the contest for its 2012 50th anniversary celebration and received more than 40 entries. Last year's winner was fourth-grader Maggie Huber of Oak Brook.
