InTIREnational Art Contest open to Upstate individuals and teams
In its second year, the InTIREnational Art Contest challenges participants to create a work of art with an international theme using up to four scrap tires donated by Michelin. Entries will be on display around the Upstate during Upstate International Month in March 2015. Two winners will be selected -- a People's Choice Award, and one selected by a panel of judges. The public will have the chance to cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award at www.inspiredtires.com. Each winning entry will receive a $5,000 donation to a charity, school, or nonprofit of its choice. The InTIREnational Art Contest is part of Upstate International 2015, a month-long series of community events and activities that celebrate the cultural diversity of South Carolina’s Upstate. The contest is open to all legal residents of South Carolina who reside in the Upstate area. Individuals as well as teams, including schools, universities, businesses, and nonprofit organizations, are eligible. Online registrations will be accepted through Jan. 16. Once entered into the contest, participants will have four weeks (from January 26 to February 20) to complete their artwork with the winner announced at an event at Michelin’s corporate headquarters on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. The contest is limited to the first 50 registrants. Find out more and register here. Via: Michelin North America Inc.
