Announcing our 2014 Butterfly Festival Logo Design Contest!

We are now accepting art submissions from New Jersey high school students for our 2014 Butterfly Festival logo! Our event theme is “Flying Colors”, so artwork should depict flying and fluttering native butterflies, insects, or birds. The winning submission will be featured on all press materials, including t-shirts, and will be framed and hung in our new Environmental Center. The winner will also receive $100 and family passes to the 2014 Butterfly Festival. Submissions are due April 4th at noon! See the contest rules here.

Ready to submit your artwork? Please complete and send this form with your design.

Congrats to Prachi Joshi, 2013 Butterfly Festival Design Contest winner!

10th grader Prachi Joshi is a student at Hopewell Valley Central High School. Her design creatively depicts our theme of Metamorphosis, symbolizing evolution, rebirth, and renewal. This theme reflects the changes that are taking place at the Watershed, including a new LEED Platinum environmental center and a redesigned trail network.

Thanks to all our local high school and middle school students who submitted artwork for this contest. We were amazed and inspired by the talent and creativity that went into all submissions, and our judges had a very difficult time making a decision.
