(SALEM) - The Salem-Keizer Education Foundation is launching its annual Awesome 3000 T-Shirt Art Contest, challenging Salem-Keizer middle and high school students to create a winning design for the fun run’s 25th anniversary.
The Awesome 3000 is one the largest timed youth fun runs in the U.S. and the funding source for SKEF’s annual teacher grants, to be awarded later this month. The 2007 Awesome in May will mark the run’s 25th anniversary.
The foundation is planning special events, including a reunion run and an appearance by a Nike-sponsored athlete.
The foundation will award cash prizes to students for the top three T-Shirt designs: first place, $100; second place, $50; third place, $25. In addition, the school art department entering the winning design will be awarded $500.
The 2006 winning artwork was designed by Walker Middle School student Zoe Smith.
