2019 Battle of the Bands Student Art Contest
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 9:00 AM

Help design a new Battle of the Bands logo for the 5th anniversary!

The Battle of the Bands is an event featuring Page and Washburn student and staff bands, facing off for bragging rights and an amazing traveling guitar trophy. This year marks the 5th anniversary of this event and we’d like to celebrate with a new event logo. The artwork pictured has been used for the past four years and it is time for something new!

Students are encouraged to create a piece of original artwork to represent this event. The winning design will be featured on the 2019 event t-shirts and posters, and the artist of that winning design will receive a t-shirt and poster at the event!

Get more information on the contest deadline, the contest guidelines, and how to submit your design on the JPS PTA website.

For student bands interested in participating in the Battle of the Bands, watch for sign up announcements in February.
