Middle School Students Sweep Law Day Poster Contest
We are proud to congratulate three middle school students who entered and won the Lay Day Art Poster Contest sponsored by the Lake County Bar Association. Local students in grades 4-8 were invited to enter the contest.
Isabella Flannigan was awarded first place, which also came with a $50 prize. Second place was awarded to Naomi Rivera, who won $25. In third place was Ava Barbey, who received $10. The students researched the theme then drew their interpretation of it. In addition, they submitted a summary of what they drew, why they drew it, and how it related to theme. Each student did an outstanding job.
