Distraction Digest
April 13 - April 17
The Thomasville History Center, the Thomasville Center for the Arts, and the Thomasville Visitor’s Center want to bring a little color and fun into your quarantine! All ages are invited to participate in the “Our Story” coloring contest featuring a design from the Thomasville  History Center’s coloring book.
 
A panel of local professional artists from the Thomasville Center will choose the winners. The winner in each age bracket will receive a special Thomasville prize pack including goodies from the Thomasville Visitors Center and the Thomasville History Center.
 
If you do not have access to a printer, the History Center has limited quantities available for contactless pick up on the side porch of the Flowers-Roberts House, located at 725 N. Dawson Street. Look for a box labeled “Coloring Contest” under the portico. Do not forget to sanitize your hands after!

Contest Rules

Age Brackets: Littles (up to age 7), Middles (ages 8-17), and Bigs (ages 18+).
