Thompson Creations is the vehicle by which Ad-Wear Advertising, hopes to bring a larger share of the market for tourism dollars to the Crow Indian Art. The symbols represented in the market have traditionally represented more Southern Tribes. Northern Tribes, such as the Crow, have a rich and meaningful legacy of design and form to bring to the embellishment of T-shirts, jackets, hats, and accessories used in promotions, advertising, and awards programs in the upper-plains states.
Thompson Creations and Ad-Wear Advertising has sponsored an Art Contest for grades K-12 in early January for the children of Fort Thompson to express their understanding of their culture. Not only was this an opportunity to recognize local artistic talent, but it gives the children an opportunity to see how technology can be used for them to impact their local economy. Joe Hess at the local middle school was instrumental in bringing this project to life. Cash prizes were offered to K-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Only the middle school submitted entries.
