FARMINGTON — Mooseville is hosting a recycled art contest during the Farmington Downtown Summerfest being held Saturday, July 26.

Protecting the forest is important to the employees of Mooseville as well as showing off the amazing talents of people who live in Franklin County.

“We are looking for some artistic moose, bears, skunks, raccoons and other animals that are artistically inclined for our recycled art contest,” organizer Alana Knapp said.

Entries should be two- and three-dimensional artworks created from objects that have served their original purpose and need a new life. All entries should be made almost completely from reused or recycled materials and should be positive in content. Bonus points will be awarded when a moose is incorporated somewhere in the design.

The competition will be split into three categories: youth, teen and adult. Both individual and group submissions will be accepted. Projects should be less than six feet tall, weigh less than 40 pounds and be able to withstand being outdoors.

Entries will be displayed along the sidewalk in front of the Mooseville store on Main Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Entries should be set up at Mooseville between 9 and 10 a.m. with voting beginning at 10 a.m. Votes, one per person, may be cast in ballot box inside Mooseville throughout the day. Prizes include $50 cash first place and gift certificates for subsequent second and third place. For more details, call 446-6441 or stop by the store.

Also join Mooseville throughout the day for a huge sidewalk sale, fun and games on the sidewalk and shake hands with Brodey Moose, mayor of Mooseville.
