The Big Spring Herald is teaming up with the Heritage Museum of Big Spring to present a “Newspaper Dress Contest”. According to Tammy Schrecengost, Director of the Heritage Museum, the exhibit on the Big Spring Herald will be on display at the museum from August 31st to November 1st. Schrecengost believed that the dressmaking contest would be a good way to celebrate the opening of the exhibit because the wife of Tom Jordan, publisher of the Big Spring Herald, had made the newspaper dress featured in the center photo below in 1904 to commemorate the first newspaper off of the press.

The dress must be made from newspapers and must be able to display on a mannequin, but having a mannequin is not required. Schrecengost noted that it can be held together by stitching, staples, or glue and can have garnishes on it, but the main material must be newspapers.

Dresses will be accepted through 4 PM on Sept. 11th and judging will be on Sept. 12th with the winner announced on Sept. 13th. The winning dressmaker will receive a Singer 44S Classic Heavy Duty Sewing Machine with 23 Built-In Stitches and a 1-year subscription to the Big Spring Herald.

For more information about the contest, you can contact the Heritage Museum at 432-267-8255.
