ABOUT THE BUTTON
Rockport New Year’s Eve holds an annual button design contest that is open to students in grades 3, 4, and 5 at Rockport Elementary School. Six designs selected by the RNYE committee are displayed at the Motif No 1 Day festival, and the public votes to select a winning design. This year’s button was designed by Caden Purington, an RES 5th grader.
