Youth Creativity on Display in U.S. Senior Open Poster Contest

In its continued effort to engage youth in the game, the USGA announced the launch of its inaugural Junior Poster Design Contest for the U.S. Senior Open Championship.

Multiple winners will be chosen, and their designs will be displayed on-site at the 44th U.S. Senior Open, which will be contested from June 27-30 at Newport Country Club in Newport, R.I. The contest serves to celebrate and showcase the artwork of talented youths throughout the country. Submissions will be judged based on creativity and originality.

To enter the contest, entrants must print or download a copy of the official entry form, complete the form and create an original poster design in the designated area. The entry deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 12. Winners will be announced on Tuesday, May 21.

“Newport Country Club and its surrounding community are synonymous with the history of golf,” said Hank Thompson, Senior Director of the U.S. Senior Open. “This contest will provide a fun opportunity for juniors to engage with the championship in a new and exciting way. We look forward to displaying the winning designs and meeting some of the incredibly talented kids.” 

All youths age 17 and under receive complimentary admission to the championship with a ticket-holding adult. Specific on-site activities for juniors will be announced closer to the championship. Tickets are available for purchase here.

The contest is open to legal residents of all 50 states and the District of Columbia who are 17 and younger. Minors must have a parent/legal guardian’s permission to participate through a signed entry form. Eligible entrants under 13 must have a parent/legal guardian submit the entry form on their behalf. No purchase or payment is necessary to enter or win.
