The Whitehouse Arts Advisory Board is looking for photographers — amateur or professional — to submit photos for its Design a Banner Contest. Contestants must live in the 43571 Zip Code. Photos should depict the photographer’s interpretation of life in Whitehouse. The winning entries will be placed on banners that will be displayed downtown this summer.
Four winners — including a grand prize — will be selected, one from each of three age divisions. Each winner will receive a banner after the public display is removed. The remaining banners will be auctioned. Proceeds of the auction will help pay for future art displays.
There is no entry fee. The deadline for submissions is June 1. Entry forms are available at the village hall, 6925 Providence St., by calling 419-877-5383, or by visiting whitehouseoh.gov.
The village also announces upcoming enrichment classes at the village hall that are free and open to the public:
