To celebrate Willow Springs' 150th "birthday" a mural design contest is sponsored by Basil Haven Health Food Store.

Create a mural design for the water well structure off the alley south of Main Street in Willow Springs. Fill out the contest application available at Basil Haven 113 E. Main St or at the Ferguson Building downtown.

All submitted content must be family-friendly and original works, and the design itself should be unsigned. The contest is open to residents of the Willow Springs School District.

Design must be two-dimensional but can be submitted using any media. The final mural will be painted onto the structure, 8 feet tall by 30 feet wide. Submissions must be to scale.

Deadline for submissions is Feb. 28.
