This year's Cherry Days art work was created by Paonia High School art student Elena Neirmann. She was among several students of art teacher Dave Kuta who submitted designs for the fourth annual Cherry Days art contest, sponsored by the Cherry Days Forever committee.

Her logo depicts this year's theme of "Seventy Cherry Years."

The committee awarded Niermann $50 for the winning logo. Other finalists include Macy O'Rourke, who was awarded $35 for her design, and Xavey Udy, who received $20 for her third-pace entry. Niermann's design, left, is found on the home page of the Paonia Cherry Days website (www.cherrydays.com), and printed on this year's buttons, which are available at Don's Market, Hays Drug, Paonia Farm and Home, Dependable Lumber, Ollie's Ice Cream, and at the Cherry Days booth located in the Lions Pavilion at Paonia Town Park.
