Humane Society Poster Contest Winner Announced

January 2019

Winner Emily Phipps from Tynes ElementaryAs 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.

Winning poster artworkThe 2018 winning poster was created by Emily Phipps, a student at Tynes Elementary School. Aside from having her poster made into a giant billboard along Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park, Emily received a prize package that included four tickets to Sea World and Aquatica, and a check for $100. The billboard was displayed for an entire 30 days on Blanding Blvd. Additional winners were; 2nd place Rylie Mason of Rideout Elementary and 3rd place Chloe Toney also from Rideout Elementary.
