Decorating Contest

Apple Festival Catalog Cover Art Contest Winners have been chosen.

The Chilhowie Community Apple Festival Committee thanks all of the students that participated in our 2022 catalog cover art contest. We had such great participation, the judges actually chose two submissions as first and second place.

The second place artwork will be on the cover of our tri-fold pamphlets that are distributed at other festivals and community events in the surrounding areas beginning in May. The first place artwork will be on the cover of the festival catalog which will be available at the beginning of September.

We are recognizing all those that submitted artwork by including collage pages in the catalog of all of the non-winning artwork. The names of the students that submitted the entries will be listed with the pages.

The winning students have been notified of their artwork selection. The winners and their artwork will be recognized in the Smyth County News in the next few weeks.

Again we thank you for your involvement in our endeavor. We plan to have the contest again next year so please plan to participate.

This community event which so many citizens enjoy would not be possible without the hard working volunteers who spend a great deal of time and effort to make it happen. So if you enjoy the Apple Festival each year, a simple word of Thanks might be in order!
