 The winner will receive $200, ten buttons and recognition on the Rivertown Days Schedule of Events.  The artwork will become the property of the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce and may not be used by other parties without written consent from the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce.

 This year will be the 37th Rivertown Days celebration (36th Anniversary).  Artwork can be submitted either electronically or hand drawn. While computer drafted designs are easier to work with, all entries will be considered.  The button size is approximately 2 ½” in diameter and the design must include the dates July 17 – 19, 2015, Hastings, MN and either “Brought to you by the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce or Presented by the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce”.
