The Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council (PRLAAC) will sponsor a Chalk Contest in downtown Park Rapids Friday, July 28 as part of Crazy Days.

Day care providers and others are invited to bring preschoolers to do chalk art on downtown sidewalks Friday morning, and all age youth are invited to participate in the chalk contest from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

Judges will award cash prizes for the top three sidewalk chalk drawings: $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place. Think about participating as a group or on your own to raise money for your organization.

Sidewalk chalk will be provided. Artists may want to bring their own sponges, water, etc.

There is no charge to participants.
