Hart County Public Library and Horse Cave Free Public Library are sponsoring Bicentennial Contests for all school-age children in Hart County.

Cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place contest finishers. All students who submit an entry will be entered in a drawing for additional prizes. The contest window runs from now through February 15, 2019.

All completed entries should be turned in to the students' school librarian (or the public libraries if the student is home schooled) by the February 15, 2019 deadline.

Winners will be announced and recognized by the end of February. Poster and postcard winning entries will be displayed at the library during the month of March, and winning digital project entries will be featured on the library website and the Bicentennial Facebook page, as well as other social media sites promoting the Hart County Bicentennial.
