DESIGN-A-FLAG CONTEST
Children (up to age 18) are invited to design a flag in recognition of Public Works Week! Students can use their creativity to design a flag that represents what they think public works does in a community.

The winning design will be used to create real flags that will be flown at Leduc County offices during National Public Works Week. Flags must be submitted in a digital format (scanned drawings will also be accepted). Designs are due Friday, May 10 to katherine@leduc-county.com. Blank flag templates are available to download here.
