PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce today announced the winners of the tenth annual Paint the Town Red Business Decorating Contest.  Paint the Town Red is an annual event aimed at showcasing business and community support for Pittsburg State University. 

Participating businesses were divided into one of three categories based on number of employees.  Division I was designated for businesses with more than 15 employees, Division II featured those with 8-15 employees and Division III participants had fewer than eight employees. The Community Favorite Award was determined through public online voting and included all participating businesses.

“After ten years of Paint the Town Red, businesses still do an incredible job of being creative and I think everyone had fun this year with the superhero theme,” said Devin Gorman, chamber vice president of operations.  “Our volunteer judges have a challenging task every year, but regardless of which businesses win the contest, each one is deserving of recognition.”
