SHIRLEY -- The Shirley Center Farmers Market is holding its second annual Kids Poster Contest.

Children in grades 1-5 can submit a 12-inch-by-18-inch design for the 2014 Farmers Market poster. The theme for the picture should be farm, garden, plant, vegetable, local fruit, flowers (or a combination of any of those), and should be hand-drawn and in color. There is no fee to enter; deadline for submissions is Thursday, Oct. 3, between 3 and 7 p.m., at the Farmers Market on the Center Common.

The winner will be announced at the Farmers Market on Thursday, Oct. 10, and all submissions will be on display. The winner will have his or her design featured in the 2014 poster and will also win a special gift bag.
