Atlanta Bag Design Contest
Congrats to Grady High School freshman Dhruv Mehra! Dhruv created the winning design for the COUNTRY Financial® reusable bag design contest for Peachtree Road Farmers Market. His artwork, depicting the delicate balance between life and living green encompassed within a peach, perfectly captures the spirit of this year’s theme Live, Love, Be Green.
Dhruv Mehra will receive a $1,000 scholarship from COUNTRY Financial. Peggy Pierre and Aydreon Wynn, both students at Mundy Mill’s High School, were named runners-up. Each will receive a $500 scholarship.
The winner and runners-up were announced during the opening day of Peachtree Road Farmers Market on April 11. Shoppers can pick up this year’s limited edition reusable canvas bags at select markets throughout the season.
“Dhruv’s artwork is a beautiful commentary on how our lives are intrinsically intertwined with the earth. It is an elegant reminder for us to lead lives that respect and nurture the environment,” says Tim Richardson, COUNTRY Financial agency manager.
This is the third year COUNTRY Financial has sponsored the bag design contest.
“We are thrilled to see shoppers come back each year, and we know it’s because they value the hard work and quality products our local farmers bring. They love the reusable canvas bag, especially since it is designed by a local student and a reminder of what the market is all about,” says Lauren Carey, Peachtree Road Farmers market manager.
We hope to see you at the market this season!
