2020 Bath Canada Day Button Design Contest

The annual button design contest is a longstanding and much anticipated feature of our community July 1st civic celebrations. It is a 46 year tradition that we didn’t want to break.

The contest is now closed. Thank you to all the children who submitted their designs.

Volunteers from the Bath Artisans will select the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Honourable Mention designs. The winners will be notified by email by May 18th. The winning designer will receive a $50 cheque, 3 runner-ups will be award $25 each.

The winning design will be made into a large wooden button and displayed prominently in the Village. Specific site(s) will be announced.

The 4 prize winners will have their designs posted on this website and on Facebook,  various e newsletters i.e, the Village of Bath Voice newsletter,  and made into a poster to be placed on the Post Office Notice Board.

A limited number of buttons will be produced and made available by donation to any one who would like one. Details to follow.
