Ignite! 2019 Kids’ Effigy Design Application

Hello Combustians! Do you enjoy working with children AND have a passion for building big things and then burning them to the ground?  The Ignite! Planning Association is looking for an effigy designer for the 2019 event.  If your design is selected, you will be asked to create a volunteer team and build the kids’ effigy at Spirithaven.  The majority of the project will need to be created and built on site so that the children of Combustia can help participate in create the masterpiece.  The Kids’ Effigy will begin construction at a temporary location in Combustia,  On Sunday morning, it will need to be moved to the fire circle where Saturday’s Effigy took place. The budget for this year is $500.
