Poster Contest Winner Announced
As part of our ongoing mission to foster humane attitudes through education, the Society brought its annual poster contest to Clay County Schools. Once again, participating fifth grade classes were treated to a presentation on the importance of spaying and neutering to prevent pet overpopulation. The students were then asked to create a poster to demonstrate this important message. More than 800 students took part. Each school chose three posters to represent their classes and a panel of judges decided the top three winners overall.
The 2017 winning poster was created by Jaslynne Gonzalez, a student at Tynes Elementary School. Aside from having her poster made into a giant billboard along Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park, Jaslynne received a prize package that included four tickets to Sea World and Aquatica, and a check for $100. The billboard is displayed for the entire month of January. Additional winners were; 2nd place Katelyn Hellman of Oakleaf Village Elementary and 3rd place Macy Opp of Shadowlawn Elementary.
