HOISINGTON — The Hoisington Chamber of Commerce will again sponsor the Labor Day Float Contest for the Labor Day Parade to be held Monday, Sept. 5, during the city’s annual Labor Day Weekend celebration.
Float entries are divided into five categories: Religious floats, Scout and student organizations, 4-H clubs, local organizations and "all other" floats.
A sweepstakes prize of $400 will be awarded to the most outstanding entry. In addition, first place in each category will be awarded $150, second place $75 and third place $50.
The theme for this year’s celebration is "There is no place like home." Entries will be accepted until the parade deadline of Thursday, Aug. 25.
There is no entry fee.
Organizations building floats may not use business sponsors’ names anywhere on the float or towing vehicle. All floats will be judged at 8:15 a.m. on parade day. Each float will be judged in 10 categories, with one to 10 points given in each category. A copy of the judging criteria is available upon request.
All other entries for the parade are now also being accepted.
