The News-Gazette Design-An-Ad competition is an annual contest which consists of local school children of all ages designing advertisements for local businesses with the potential to win a cash prize.  Judging is initially performed by the business based upon originality, neatness, effectiveness and tastefulness of the message.  Most of the advertisements we received this year were hand drawn by children in third to sixth grade which makes the effort and designs quite impressive. The ads were published in the March 25, 2020 special section that highlighted the ones chosen.  Thank you to all the participants for their hard work and creativity.
