China Eubanks, a Blaine High School sophomore, has won the Minneapolis Farmers Market’s inaugural reusable bag design contest. She’ll receive a $1,000 scholarship from the farmers market and COUNTRY Financial as a grand prize.
Her design will appear on thousands of reusable canvas bags that will be distributed for free at the market throughout the summer.
The design needed to fit the theme “Sprouts in the City,” and include the words “2013 Minneapolis Farmers Market.”
