To highlight its Dodge City Days Concert Series, Central Station has been awarded an attraction and event print grant from the Dodge City Convention and Visitors Bureau Advisory Board.

"Central Station has applied for assistance in printing posters and tickets to promote the Dodge City Days Concert series," CVB director Jan Stevens said in a news release. "These printed pieces will be distributed regionally to bring visitors to town by raising awareness of the events and increasing participation and attendance."

Past grant recipients include Western State Bank Expo, Kansas Teachers Hall of Fame, Carnegie Center for the Arts, RoundUp Rodeo, Dodge City Days, National Barrel Horse Association, Main Street and Winter Expo.

The grant for the project was $500 and is a reimbursable grant that requires a proof of the final project before the grant is awarded, covering 50 percent of the artwork, printing cost and other expenses, up to $500 per project.

"The CVB wants to aid our attractions and event coordinators in getting the word out to tourists, and to aid in bringing overnight travel to Dodge City, as part of the mission of the CVB of promoting Dodge City and the area’s resources and assets to bring prospective tourists and convention and travel business to Dodge City," said Stevens.

Anyone wishing to apply or for more information may contact Stevens at 620-225-8186.

"Some timeline limitations apply, and all applicants are required to use the Get the Heck into Dodge logo on the material and provide the completed printed piece to the Visitors Center in Dodge City, as well as other Travel Information Centers throughout Kansas," Stevens said.

The application is also available on the CVB website at under the Media and More tab.
