The Rona Barrett Foundation is counting on talented local high school students to design the logo for the nonprofit organization’s annual major fundraiser.

The winner will receive a $500 gift card.

“This year marks the 50th anniversary of the famous Woodstock music festival,” said Rona Barrett, founder and CEO of the Rona Barrett Foundation, “and our big benefit later this fall will salute the era.”

The fundraiser will raise money for the programs and services for low-income seniors residing at the Golden Inn & Village, the senior affordable housing envisioned by the Rona Barrett Foundation.

“The idea for the logo contest came about because there are so many talented teenagers, many with an affinity for music, living in the valley,” Barrett said. “It seemed to be an ideal way for high school students to become involved with of our Woodstock event.”

Students can submit an original drawing, painting or computer-generated artwork depicting the word Woodstock. All entries must be submitted by Friday, April 5, by email to and be formatted in a high-resolution PDF file.

Artists should include their name, address, phone number and email, age and grade, and teacher’s name. Only one entry per student is allowed.
