White Lake Water Festival ~ May 17, 18, & 19 begins in:

Last year’s Student Logo Competition winner, Kiara Polovitch, was at White Lake last weekend to autograph the Step and Repeat banner that will be used at the 46th Annual White Lake Water Festival. Then a sophomore at West Bladen, Miss Polovitch designed this winning logo last year. “That logo is on everything I touch these days - applications for vendors, applications for parade participants, the website where updates are posted, on T-shirt orders, and soon to appear on the billboard on White Lake Drive," said Water Festival Chairman, Terri Hawley. “When she turned the corner today and saw her design repeated 16 times across the banner, her expression was priceless,” Ms. Hawley added.  

This photo will be going out to Art Teachers across the county encouraging students to enter the White Lake Water Festival Student Logo Competition for this year. Next spring another young artist will be able to see their work posted everywhere. 


The Step and Repeat banner will be located at Goldston’s Beach throughout Water Festival Weekend ~ May 17, 18, & 19, for your photo opportunities. During Water Festival weekend, at the Wake Shop at Goldston’s, you will be able to vote for next year’s winner. 

This competition has a cash prize of $100 sponsored by McDuffie Pest Control and Cape Fear Fire Protection. Miss Polovitch will be riding a float with the ten finalists from this year’s contest in the Water Festival Parade also sponsored by McDuffie Pest Control and Cape Fear Fire Protection.
