Draw a poster that celebrates the Bowling Green International Festival! Any medium may be used. Any size is accepted, but we prefer no larger than a regular poster board.


Students in Grades K-12. All students in South Central Kentucky city, county and private schools as well as homeschooled students are invited to participate. Permission must be granted to post winner’s name, grade, teacher and school on our website and social media.


All posters are due Thursday September 12th, 2019 No later than 4:00 p.m. at the Warren County Attorney’s Office 1001 Center Street, Suite 206, Bowling Green KY 42101.


Posters are judged on creativity, artistic ability and theme by staff at the Warren County Attorney’s Office. In addition, a People’s Choice Award will be given to the student in each category whose poster receives the most likes on the festival’s Facebook page between Monday September 16 and Monday September 23, 2019.  Categories are determined upon receipt of entries but there are at minimum two categories: Grades K-8 & Grades 9-12.
