Mask-Up! Face Mask Contest!

MHAST is hosting a face mask contest to begin on July 1 and we are challenging the community to mask your face, not your feelings. The contest will honor the most creative handmade masks and is open to all community members, of all ages, in Broome and Tioga Counties. MHAST will enlist the help of celebrity judges to award fabulous prizes in the categories listed below.

Digital submissions will be accepted from Wednesday, July 1 through Sunday, August 2 at 11:59 PM. Winners will be notified by email and will receive their awards on Friday, August 7 in conjunction with First Friday activities in downtown Binghamton. Further details will follow.

The following criteria apply:

ORIGINALITY: Enter as many masks as you’d like! Be creative! Have fun! Masks must be original in design and can opt to use a commercially available mask as a base or foundation for additional materials. The use of N-95 or other professional PPE is not allowed (we want to save those for professional use!). Masks must cover the nose and mouth at a minimum.

Entries must be submitted electronically in the following formats: .jpeg, .jpg, or .png and must clearly show the mask being worn.

DEADLINES: All entries must be submitted through our website at www.mhast.org by Sunday, August 2, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
