Doodlers & tinkerers needed for art contest

GREENVILLE – Calling all doodlers, tinkerers, thinkerers, and ponderers. Gathering at the Garst is proud to announce this year’s student art contest theme: Ohio Invents!

You probably knew the first airplane came from Ohio…but did you know that without Ohio inventors, we wouldn’t have light bulbs, speakers, video cameras, golf balls, rubber, and most importantly…hot dogs.

Doodlers, tinkerers, thinkerers, and ponderers between fourth and eighth grade, squeeze your creative juices from your noggin and invent the next masterpiece of invention art.

Create an original piece of art depicting a famous Ohio inventor, or inventions created in Ohio. Five creative doodlers and tinkerers will win between $25 and $75 in cash.

Artwork can be any medium, as long as it fits on a 12×16-inch poster or mat board. You can pick up free boards at Granny’s Corner in downtown Greenville.

Hurry doodlers, tinkerers, thinkerers, and ponderers. You must drop off your next patent-pending masterpiece to The Garst Museum by July 22.
