UNION, NJ - Artists of all ages are invited to post their chalk art and messages of hope and togetherness for a chance to win gift cards to various Union Center businesses.

After seeing so many inspiring chalk art and messages pop up, the Union Recreation Department and the Union Center Special Improvement District (SID) want to encourage more uplifting sidewalk messages as Union residents connect with others throughout our community.

The contest opens on Monday, May 11, through Sunday, May 17.  Participants are invited to post their pictures to Instagram and use #ChalkUpUnion.
