The Huntington County Historical Society is sponsoring the Hoosier Historical Fine Art Show and Contest.

The event is for those who enjoy painting, sketching, sculpting, photography, woodworking or making collages.
The subject of this year's show and contest is "Indiana" - historic person, place or event.

Those age 5 and older are invited to enter their "Indiana" artwork.

Winners will be selected in three age groups: 5 to 12; 13 to 18 and adults.

A "Best of Show" category will also be awarded.

Winners will be determined by the public and judges with artistic and historical backgrounds.

Public judging will take place Monday, April 15, through Friday, May 10.

Prizes will be awarded at the Historical Society's general meeting on Wednesday, May 15.
