Youth Encouraged to Participate in Follow the Rails Art Trail Art Contest

follow the rails art trail youth contestThis is the fifth year for the annual ‘Follow the Rails Art Trail’ which traverses NE Hwy 2 from Grand Island to Alliance, known as the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway.  Follow the Rails Art Trail is a self-guided art and culture show featuring Nebraska artists and craftsmen.  Eleven communities provide venues to artists to demonstrate and display their work.  The event is October 16 -18th. 

This year the Follow the Rails Art Trail is adding a youth art contest component to encourage art appreciation among our area youth.   Area youth are encouraged to create their own art from round bales or small square bales.  Youth may participate as a part of their school or as individual groups with an adult sponsor.  

Bales will be placed along the Follow Rails Art Trail route to act as markers for travelers and bus tours during the event.   

Registration, rules and regulations, and prizes awarded to contest participants are located on the Follow the Rails Art Trail web site at  Questions about this event can be directed to Charity Adams 308-379-9119 or
