A family four-pack of box-seat tickets to opening night at BB&T Ballpark leads the list of prizes that are being offered to promote Forsyth Creek Week, March 15 – 22.

The Winston-Salem Dash is donating four box-seat tickets for opening night, April 3, to the grand prize winner of the Creek Week Facebook photo contest. The winner will also receive a professionally framed print of the photo, courtesy of Hampton House Art & Framing.

The photo contest is open to everyone participating in Creek Week events. Simply take pictures while participating in any Forsyth Creek Week event and post the best photo on the Forsyth Creek Week Facebook. Entrants may post one picture each day.

In addition to the grand prize, the participant who sends in the photo that gets the most “likes” each day will receive a Creek Week T-shirt.

Also at every Creek Week event, participants can enter a drawing for a FreeGarden Earth compost bin. Participants can enter once at every Creek Week event they attend.

Participants in the Great American Clean-up on Saturday, March 22 can enter the Most Unusual Find contest, which is offering prizes of $50, $25 and $10.
