New Jimmie Rodgers Art Contest Announced

The Jimmie Rodgers Foundation is partnering with Community Bank to sponsor a poster contest for the Jimmie Rodgers Festival.

The winning artist will have their entry printed as a poster to promote this year's festival. All artists are welcome to enter the contest.

"Any artist who has a vision of the spirit of the Jimmie Rodgers Festival and would like to portray that on a poster," said foundation president Betty Lou Jones.

"We're looking at it as a major tool to get folks to Meridian," foundation member Cooper Huff said. "Where people in Wisconsin and North Carolina and South Dakota who would like to enter in this competition can look at it and say, hey maybe there's something going on in Meridian."

For more information on the poster contest, you may visit the Jimmie Rodgers website. A link is provided below.
