The winner of each category will receive $50; second place will be awarded $25. Winning entries will also be displayed in Cottage Grove City Hall.

The contest is open to all ages. Entries can be submitted at Cottage Grove City Hall until 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5. Winners will be announced at the Nov. 17 City Council meeting.
