Congratulations to our 2023 Commemorative Print Winner, Josee Hanna Her piece titled: Cherries in a Hollyhock Field
became the 2023 Official Commemorative Print. These limited edition prints can be purchased online
and at our Souvenir Tent during the National Cherry Festival.
Each year we engage our local and state students in an art competition surrounding our signature fruit. Since the Commemorative Print program started in 1992, the Festival has received some magnificent artwork through the years all depicting our favorite fruit, the cherry. Currently, the Art Competition contributes over $6,000 in scholarships and prizes to our area students. The theme for 2023 was Farm Stands.
This year, the competition categories were 4th grade through 8th grade and 9th through college. The top three winners will receive a scholarship. First place is $1,000, second place is $700 and third place is $500. Other prizes will be award to People's Choice winners and category winners.
