In honor of Upstate International Month, Michelin is proud to sponsor the InTireNational Art contest. Now in its third year, the contest challenges local artists, schools and organizations to create works of art that celebrate the international community in the Upstate region of South Carolina using four scrap Michelin tires. The works of art are on display at the Hughes Main Library in Greenville for the month of March. Those wishing to help select the winner of the "People's Choice Award" can visit www.inspiredtires.com and vote for their favorite work. The winner of the People's Choice and Judge's Choice will each receive $5,000 for the charity or non-profit of their choice. Read more about the participants, their work and their cause at www.inspiredtires.com.
