Light Pole Banner Design Contest Winners
Eden Prairie residents David Gregoire, Kelley Regan and Patricia Young are the winners of Eden Prairie’s Light Pole Banner Design Contest. The contest began in May, when residents were invited to submit banner designs evoking the spirit of Eden Prairie. The designs were then reviewed by a jury, and finalists were chosen by a group of city staff. The final designs were then voted upon online, and three winners were chosen. David, Kelley and Patricia’s light pole designs will be on display throughout Eden Prairie for the next two or three years, depending upon how they hold up over time. David’s design is of the Gathering Bridge at Purgatory Creek Park, while Kelley’s features a flying eagle and Patricia Young’s depicts beautiful fall scenery.
