Progress Initiative Sponsoring Bike Decorating Contest

The West Washington County Progress Initiative is sponsoring a decorated bike contest to add artistic flavor to the area.

Bikes (they don’t have to be operable) can be painted and decorated in any manner. Individuals, families, businesses from through the West Washington County Unit District are invited to participate. Decorated bikes should be displayed in easily visible places.

Bikes will be judged by a committee in early September. Contact Debby Stricker at 243-5428 or email to enter the contest.

The winning entry will receive $100 and the bike will be displayed at the Progress Initiative booth at the  Okawville Fair and Wheat Festival.
