Port Coquitlam teens between the ages of 13 and 18 have until this Friday, March 15 to try and nab $200.
As part of the city's 100th anniversary celebrations, local youth are invited to participate in a T-shirt design contest, with the winner being announced during Youth Week celebrations running May 1 to 7.
Entry guidelines stipulate that the entries express one of more of the following concepts: what they love about living in and growing up in PoCo; what makes PoCo unique; some of the great qualities about PoCo and some of the city's achievements over the last 100 years.
The designs are for the front of the shirt only, and will be printed on either white or black fabric, depending on the design.
The contest is only open to Port Coquitlam youth. Submissions must include a brief description of the design, and be submitted in a jpeg file format no larger than 10 MB.
The winner will receive a $200 honourarium and will be required to provide the original format and turn over ownership of the design to the city. For more information, see www.portcoquitlam.ca/100shirt.
