Grasshoppers Mermaid

Thank you to all creatives who submitted designs for the 2023 Emma Crawford Coffin Races T-Shirt Design Contest. We received incredible submissions this year, and much appreciation to all contestants for the time spent on creating and sending in your artwork. 
Out of over 1,200 votes (record high!) both online and in-person at the Chamber of Commerce, there was a tight competition between our top 5 designs. 
Without further ado, CONGRATULATIONS to GRASSHOPPERS MERMAID, our first place winner! They will receive 2 VIP tickets to the Coffin Races, the 2023 commemorative t-shirt, and $50 in Manitou Money.  
Again, thank you to all who submitted artwork, and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s races on Saturday, October 26th in Downtown Manitou Springs.
