United Way of Missoula County 90th Anniversary Special Edition Beer Label Call for Art 2021

United Way of Missoula County improves community conditions so that all Missoulians can thrive. Founded in 1931, the nonprofit has continuously brought people from across the community together to build a stronger Missoula for everyone. Today, our work focuses on improving education, financial stability and health for all residents.

During the summer of 2021, United Way of Missoula County will celebrate 90 years of service to the Missoula community. Imagine Nation Brewing is creating a special-edition beer named Sip United to help with the summer’s celebration, and the art selected will become the beer-can label and possibly the art used during the 90th Anniversary events and promotions.

The artist whose art is selected will receive a $500 award, with the option for United Way to purchase full rights to the art for another $1,000.
