FARMINGTON —For many years Farmington Rotary has sponsored a window painting contest for area youth in downtown Farmington. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year Rotary invites youth to participate in a virtual Halloween Art Contest.

Here’s how it will work: Create your masterpiece at home – however you choose.  It could be a painting or it could be the pumpkin you carved. Take a picture of your Halloween artwork.
