Welcome to the
Annual Medal Drawing Contest
We would like to invite all youth from grade 4 to 12 to draw for us this upcoming year’s FTNR medal. This medal will be given to all runners/walkers who complete the 3rd Annual Fort Town Night Run on May 4th, 2019 in Prescott, ON. As you might know or not know, May 4th is a very special day. It is known to most as “May The Force (Fourth) Be With You.” And so, we hope to pay homage to Star Wars. We would like you to incorporate the Star Wars theme into the medal for the FTNR, while striking a balance with our focus on Prescott’s historical sites. We propose the following:
In a galaxy far, far away…
The Republic is in chaos. The Jedi and the Sith have been at war for centuries. A young Jedi Master has received a vision from the Force. On a forgotten planet, an abandoned Fort holds a secret. The Force seeks balance. A hidden talisman holds the key to bring peace to the galaxy. The Force has chosen you to follow this path to your destiny.
As you might have guessed, the talisman is the medal. I leave it in your capable creative hands to design an unforgettable work of art. For additional information about the event, the town of Prescott, and last two medal designs, please visit our website at www.forttownnightrun.com.
