Curry County hold its own mask contest

CLOVIS (KSMX)-  Curry County officials will sponsor its own mask contest to promote the proper wearing and use of facial coverings and to show support to individuals and businesses that are making efforts to slow the spread of COVID- 19. The contest proceeds the State of New Mexico’s successful mask contest.

The county encourages individuals to do their part and make wearing masks creative by encouraging local businesses, schools, and community leaders to have contests for the best mask, funniest mask, most creative mask, most unique mask, and involve our youth in utilizing their artistic skills.

County Manager Pyle stated, “Let’s take this challenging time and let’s have fun, while, at the same time, slow the spread and protect our families, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and community. Let’s do this, as a county, to make people laugh and have something to remember when reflecting on how we, as a community, took a challenge and turned it into something creative, unique, all while slowing the spread and showing respect for our community members.”

Residents can submit their funny, creative and unique masks to the County via email at:  ecrouthamel@currycounty.org

The county will periodically post masks on the County Facebook page and website through July 15.

Businesses can take this time to design masks for them and the County will post their masks and advertise their business as a COVID-safe business of mask-wearing on the County social media page and website.
