2009 U.S. Senior Open Crooked StickCARMEL – Calling all junior artists!  The 2009 U.S. Senior Open is seeking the help of junior artists to design the championship’s official poster.  The poster theme is “Golf is for everyone.”  Students interested in participating must be enrolled in kindergarten through 5th grade and live in Indiana.

One winner will be selected from each grade level, and a grand prize winner will be selected from those finalists.  Each grade level winner will receive a prize package including championship tickets, merchandise and a framed copy of their poster autographed by Pete Dye, 2009 U.S. Senior Open Honorary Chairman.   

In addition, the grand prize winner’s design will be declared the Official Championship Poster and will be reproduced and sold in the merchandise tent during championship week.  Proceeds from the sale of championship posters and programs will go to benefit Riley Hospital for Children.
