LA CROSSE,Wis. (WKBT) - An annual contest gives artists a unique canvas to color.
The Washburn Neighborhood Association is once again putting on its rain barrel painting contest.
Officials are asking residents to join the competition and paint the barrels to the theme "Backyard Nature."
The barrels will be displayed around town for about three weeks before being judged at the Garden Expo in March.
Winners of the contest will get downtown bucks. "Even if you're not an artist, but you have a little inkling to paint something, this is the thing to do. And if you have children, this is a great children's project and it's not hard," said Randy Magno from the Washburn Neighborhood Association.
Entry forms with details on how to get a barrel can be found at the La Crosse Public Library.23805454
