Peoria, Illinois - The Greater Peoria Airport Authority, in cooperation with the Peoria Schools District 150, is sponsoring a Poster Contest for the Prairie Air Show July 5th and 6th. Each entrant receives 2 free tickets to the show. The Grand Prize winner also recieves a $50 Gift Certificate from In-Play and Ruby Tuesdays at the Maxam, 2nd Place receives a $25 Gift Certificate from Peoria Park District, and 3rd Place receives a Family Pack to Lakeview Museum and Planetarium. The 8th grade students at District 150 were asked to create anything aviation related using any medium they choose.

"There are so many oppotunities in the aviation field, we thought this would be a great way to promote and develop an interest in aviation," said Solomon Balraj, Director of Airports for GPRA.

Juding will be at GPRA, on the first floor near the Gift Shop area Friday, May 16th at 3:00 p.m. The top 25 posters will be displayed at the airport throughout the Prairie Air Show in July.
