The Urbandale area will have a fresh new look, thanks to some young artists and a contest by the Urbandale Planning Council and Neighborhoods Inc. Last night, Alvin White III was announced as the winning designer of 13-foot-tall razor banners for the community.

Students from Urbandale and LaMora Park Elementary were invited to submit a design. Alvin’s design will be displayed to brighten store fronts, churches, and the main hotspots of Urbandale.

Alvin won a 1st place Blue Ribbon, an anonymously donated currency gift and  Alvin’s design will be printed on the back of a T-shirt for him to wear throughout this summer.   His signature will also be on each banner.  The White family also gets passes to Binder Park Zoo for the whole summer, and Alvin gets a savings account at Chemical Bank.

 

 

 

All of the top nineteen drawings will be on display for public viewing at the Family Fare grocery store in the Urbandale Plaza until the end of June.
