Finlandia University's International School of Art & Design (ISAD) is pleased to announce a "Cookies as Your Canvas" artful cookie baking contest as part of their third annual Fusion Fest on Saturday, March 20, 2010, at the university's Jutila Center campus, Hancock.

To enter, submit an entry form and ingredient list by March 17, design a cookie that incorporates artistic elements, make 24 of them, and deliver them to the Jutila Center by noon March 20.

Cookies will be judged by three community leaders and prizes for the most artful cookies will be awarded. Prizes include gift baskets, art supplies, and Fusion Fest merchandise. Following the judging, the cookies will be sold at a Fusion Fest bake sale, where a People's Choice winner will be chosen by popular vote.

The cookie contest is a new event for the annual ISAD art and music festival. Additional Fusion Fest activities include artist booths and demonstrations, slide shows, tie dyeing and raku pottery firing workshops, community art activities, open studios, live music, and an art scavenger hunt.
