DOVER-FOXCROFT — The Maine State Museum, Center Theatre, and Maine Whoopie Pie Festival have announced that they are joining forces to sponsor the Whoopie Pie of the Future student art contest.

The contest, which is open to fifth- through 12th-graders from Maine, asks students to envision “What will the Whoopie Pie look like in 2117?”

One finalist from each county will be selected based on their submission’s creativity, originality, artistic skill and clarity of their written description.

The winner will be selected by the public online, at a special exhibition at the Maine State Museum and at the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival in Dover-Foxcroft on June 24.

Finalists from each of Maine’s 16 counties will be exhibited at the Maine Whoopie Pie Festival as well as a special exhibition at the Maine State Museum from July 11 to 29. On July 29, the Museum will host a Free Family Saturday where the contest winner will be announced.

The deadline for contest submissions is midnight on May 5.
