Group hosting ‘Salute Indiana’ contest

Teens who want to participate in Indiana’s bicentennial can get creative. The Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution is having a “Salute Indiana” contest.

Hoosiers ages 13 and older are invited to design a salute or pledge to the Indiana state flag.

The contest is modeled after the 1916 event, where residents were asked to design a state flag for Indiana. The flag that won is the current Indiana state flag.

Entries are being accepted at until Friday. The winning submission will be brought before the Indiana General Assembly for approval.

The winner will receive $200.

Vendors selling handcrafted goods can sell their creations at an upcoming craft show.

Franklin Community High School’s band boosters are looking for vendors to participate in the Oct. 1 craft fair.

Booths are 10-foot by 10-foot and rental is $35.

People selling handcrafted, quality goods are preferred, but vendors selling antiques, collectibles and direct sales products will be considered.

Applications with payment are due by Sept. 21.
