The 31st Annual AQS QuiltWeek® was held April 22 through April 25 with the 51st Dogwood Trail Celebration also in April 2015. Thousands of visitors from around the world were walking and shopping the streets of downtown Paducah during the celebrations. In order to promote the beauty of our downtown, businesses were invited to participate in a quilt and dogwood exhibit and contest by decorating the window(s) of their store/office with quilts & dogwoods April 10 through April 30. Quilt exhibits inside their shops were also encouraged.
Paducah Bank proudly sponsored the Window Display Contest again and awarded cash prizes in two categories: small and large windows. The first place prize in each category was $200 with $100 for second place. Each winner was also be presented a live dogwood tree from the Civic Beautification Board. A committee through the Paducah School of Art & Design judged the windows. A representative from Paducah Bank made a presentation to the winners shortly after the judging.
