The theme for this year's Scottish Festival T-shirt design contest was "All Are Welcome, Scot or Not." As fate would have it, the winner was a Scott, Tracey Scott of McPherson.
Scott and her family recently moved to McPherson so she hasn't attended the Scottish Festival yet but she's looking forward to it this fall. Her arts background includes "working on projects with my kids, mostly." Scott's design is of a black silhouette of a bag pipe player in a field of wheat with white clouds cut from colored paper and glued to a blue background. Her design was scanned in and wording added.
In addition to her design being featured on the festival t-shirt, Scott received $250 grand prize from the McPherson Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The t-shirts will be available at the 2014 McPherson Scottish Festival Sept. 27-28 at Lakeside Park for $15. Tickets for the festival are now available online at macfestival.org.
