The Jackson County Bicentennial Passport Project began earlier this week.
Participants who obtain a passport and have it stamped at five of 10 events, including festivals and the county fair, this year will be eligible to win a prize. Those who attend all 10 festivals and have their passports stamped at each will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize Bicentennial Basket.
Passports are available at the Bicentennial Planning Committee of Jackson County booth during the 41st annual Crothersville Red, White and Blue Festival, which began Thursday and continues through Saturday, and the other festivals. They also are available at the Jackson County Visitor Center, 100 N. Broadway St., Seymour.
The project was established by Amanda Stuckwisch and Sam Silver, who are interns this summer at the Purdue Extension Jackson County office, which is sponsoring the contest along with the visitor center.
