DESTIN — The Okaloosa Arts Alliance is celebrating its "Summer Fun" poster contest's sixth year in conjunction with the arts organization's annual arts festival.

"The OAA wants to know what you consider 'summer fun,'"  executive director Amy Baty stated in a media release. "It can be anything you can create on paper with markers, pencils, paint, pastels, charcoal or crayons."

The May 17 Spring Fest features live entertainment, arts and craft vendors, live animals, face painting, hands-on art activities, a silent auction and a display of posters from the contest.

The free, family-friendly event, formerly called the Family Fun Arts Fest Spring Fest, relocated last year from Henderson Beach State Park to Harbor Walk Village in Destin. On the Coast magazine is a sponsor.

The contest is open to all Okaloosa County School District students, with gift card prizes awarded in the elementary, middle and high school categories.

First prize in each category is a $75 gift card. Second-place winners receive a $50 gift card, while third-place winners receive a $25 card. First-place winners' art will be used on 2015 Spring Fest promotional materials.
