The New Mexico Governor’s Mansion Foundation and the New Mexico Film Office are teaming up to sponsor an “Official State Ornament” Design Contest. Students currently enrolled in a New Mexico school are invited to submit their designs for the 2020 Official State Ornament. All ornaments must be designed around this year’s theme of “New Mexico Films the Great American West.” All designs must include at least one film element and one ranch and/or Western element, and designs must “promote the state’s history of film production and ranch culture.” Each entry should bear a title for the design and include an 85-to-100 word description of how New Mexico’s history in the ranch and film industries were used in creation of the design. One top winner will be selected to receive a $2,500 scholarship. Other prizes include at $1,000 scholarship for second place, $500 for third and fourth place and $250 for fifth place.
