The McPherson Convention and Visitors Bureau is sponsoring the McPherson Holiday Rocks! contest to engage local youth in the holiday spirit.

Interested participants can retrieve a free rock from the CVB office, 1111 E. Kansas, beginning Nov. 3.

The rock must be decorated at home and and returned no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 27.

All rocks must reflect a holiday theme and will be judged on three age categories: ages 5-8; ages 9-12 and ages 13-17.

Three winners will be named in each category. First place will receive a $25 ChamberCheck; second place will receive a $15 ChamberCheck and third place will receive a $10 ChamberCheck.

All winners will also receive a free ride on the toll and the chance to help CVB staff members hide all contest rocks throughout the city of McPherson.
