Darby LaHaug, a sixth-grader at Powder Valley School, drew the winning design in the Baker County Chamber of Commerce's annual Design the Miner button contest.

Darby's button design also will be used on posters, programs and advertisements for the 2013 Miners Jubilee, set for July 19-21.

Buttons go on sale June 1. Just 2,500 buttons will be sold this year. Check the Chamber's website, www.visitbaker.com, for a list of businesses with discounts for customers with buttons.
