As part of our Tree Festival each year, we ask the public to vote for their favorite design. The winning tree designer(s) receive Chamber Bucks to spend at one of our many Monticello businesses!

This year we wanted to try something new. Thanks to social media, images of our entries can be seen all around the world. We realize not everyone can make it to see our display in person but that many of you may want to support the Monticello Area Arts Council and our tree designers. 


Now you can purchase votes online through PayPal!


All proceeds from this event are you used for our annual scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a graduating Piatt County senior high school student pursuing a career in the visual arts.



Voting for our 2019 event has concluded!
