Plattsburgh town calls on artists ahead of ‘Michigan Month’
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - The town of Plattsburgh is calling on local artists to design this year’s Michigan Month T-shirt.
Michigan Month became official last year to encourage eating locally to help businesses recover after the pandemic.
During that time, the town made “Michigan Passports” for the four stands in town. Patrons would stop at the stands, order their Michigan and get a stamp.
The first 25 people to bring their completed passports to Plattsburgh Town Hall would win a T-shirt.
“What we are going to do is start a tradition that we are going to pick a community T-shirt design every year,” Plattsburgh Town Supervisor Michael Cashman said. “The winner will receive a certificate and one of the first T-shirts, and that logo and design will be used throughout the month of July. It will get retired and then it will be a limited edition and next year we will do it all over again. We have some other fun things in store, too.”
Michigan Month kicks off July 1. Click here to submit your design or check out the rules.
