We thank our dedicated Banner Contest Judges: Sue Funk and Ron Darzen.
We had six banner groups.
The judges decided that the Junior Youth Group of First Religious Society in Carlisle, led by Jackie Schaefer, had the most original and creative banner of "crops actually walking!".
The other group recognized was the Neighboring Activists, from First Parish, Concord, led by Stuart Johnstone. The 7th grade had a "spunky" banner, that was well planned and had obvious effort put into it.
We welcomed the Westminister Congregational Church for their first year!!!
Dino's and Sorrento's from Concord donated pizza prizes.
Youth groups and Sunday/Sabbath School classes are invited to enter. Create a big colorful banner about what our CROP Walk does. Put your group's name on it, and bring it to the walk. Groups will gather under the "Banner Contest" sign for the "Banner Parade."
The winning group wins a pizza party! (pdf)
Your group's banner can be made of almost anything – an old sheet, muslin, felt – whatever captures your fancy! You may want to have your group make their CROP banner several weeks before the Walk so that you can display it and use it as publicity for the Walk.
All banners must be registered . Don't forget to bring your if you haven't sent it in by the walk date.
