Start planning today for the SFMA’s fourth annual “Stars and
Stripes” contest that launches June 12. Enter for a chance to win a

In honor of our countrymen and our nation’s birthday, create
your most unique Fourth of July field art design, snap some beauty shots of
your work and enter them in to win. You must be an active SFMA member to enter;
only patterns crafted with mowing equipment and paint are eligible.

Last year’s winner was Ryder Haulk, Assistant Sports Field Manager of Purdue University athletics. Brian Bornino, CSFM, also assisted with the project, including 50 stars and 13 stripes within the Purdue “P.”

public may vote via Facebook from July to 8 to 14. The design receiving the
most votes will be declared the winner, upon verification.
