Elgin County is not only a resilient community, but it is also a remarkable area to live, work, and play.

It is times such as these that we can all come together as a community to celebrate one another and stand together.

The Elgin Strong Campaign is here to unite the entire community and to provide YOU, our residents and business owners with an opportunity to demonstrate what YOU love about Elgin County. 

We welcome YOU, no matter your age, to be as creative as possible in helping us to create a single image/poster that will be utilized as the "face" of our #ElginStrong Campaign.


How to Participate

We are encouraging EVERYONE and ANYONE who can doodle, draw, paint, has graphic design expertise, or any other innovative way to create an 8.5" x 11" image/poster with the hashtag #ElginStrong somewhere on the image/poster. 

The deadline to submit images/posters in the online web form (to the right) will be April 20, 2020 at 11:59pm. 

Once the contest closes, Elgin County Staff will review the images and publish them on the Elgin County Economic Development & Tourism Facebook page for the public to vote on the winning image/poster. The voting will open on April 21, 2020 and close on April 27, 2020 at 11:59pm.


The winning image/poster will be that which receives the most likes. This winner will receive a (one) gift certificate to a local business. Once the winner has been declared, this image will be utilized as the official 2020 #ElginStrong campaign image. 

There will also be 4 runner-ups that will each receive a (one) gift certificate to a local business.
