Elementary Students to Submit Art, Essays Contests to Mark Celebration in Fairview Heights


Robert Goodrich Of the Post-Dispatch, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Fairview Heights grade school students will be invited to enter an art and essay contest this year on what their city will be like 25 or 100 years in the future.

The competition is one of many activities and observances in the city's 25th anniversary celebration. It was incorporated in 1969.

The "Visions of the Future" contest will have three divisions. Contestants must be Fairview Heights residents:

Pupils in kindergarten through third grade may submit drawings or paintings of what they think Fairview Heights will look like when they are adults.

Pupils in fourth and fifth grade may prepare essays on what Fairview Heights will be like 25 years from now.

Students in sixth through eighth grade may submit essays on what Fairview Heights will be like 100 years from now.

Contest details will be available soon. Gift certificates will be awarded to the top three entries in each division.

Winners are to be announced at a picnic Oct. 2 that will culminate the celebration.

Other silver anniversary observances will begin in July and continue until October.

In addition, the city has adopted an anniversary logo. "Twenty-five years of progress," it says. "Crossroads of prosperity." O'Connor & Partners, an area public relations firm, helped prepare the logo.

A souvenir booklet, "Proud Past, Promising Future," is being compiled with pictures and observations on Fairview Heights' past, present and future.
