We are excited to be offering a drawing contest this year for children aged 14-18 to participate in. Labor Day is a holiday that honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of our country. Labor∙Fest is a community festival that is put on by volunteers with help of local sponsors to celebrate our local workers over Labor Day weekend and ends with a large Labor Day Parade through downtown Janesville. We are offering a theme drawing contest in which those aged 14-18 can interpret this year’s Labor∙Fest theme of “Learning from the Past - Working with the Present - Building our Future”. The selected winner will have their drawing made into a banner for the Labor∙Fest Parade on Labor Day and will win a $50 gift card!
