RADFORD – The RADical Change Commission is looking for symbols of unity in the Radford community with some great prizes for the artwork deemed the winner.
“In honor of 9/11 and the unity we found together in tragedy and hard times, The RADical Change Commission is launching it’s next project – The Hearts in Unity Challenge,” said RADical Change Commission Chair Janiele Hamden in a written statement about the contest. “ This is a citywide challenge to RADford and will serve as a community building endeavor and fundraiser for RADical Change.”
“We challenge you RADford, to create works of heart to display on your cars, in your yards, and/or on your person to demonstrate your vision for the spirit of hope, unity, and love in the heart of the New River Valley,” she continued.
Participation in the contest is open to everyone, with no age restrictions. The registration donation is $10 per entry, but the Commission will accept whatever can be offered whether it be more or less – money will not be a barrier.
The contest will end on Oct. 1, 2020 and the winner will be announced on Oct. 5, 2020.
You must display your work publicly on your own personal property (your body counts!).
A picture is required.
The deadline for submission is Oct. 1, 2020.
The RADical Change Commission will judge the entries. Hopefully they can pick just one, but no promises.
Because entries will be received by Hamden, she will not join in the judging as to eliminate any potential bias. When she receive an entry, it will be assigned a corresponding number before being passed along for competition so confidentiality is maintained and bias is eliminated.
The winner is announced on Oct. 5, 2020.
“The winner will receive an assortment of gift cards and bragging rights, but they’ll also receive a featured spot in The Radford News Journal and in person (optional) Public Recognition at City Council,” said Hamden.
