Humane Society 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 1,100 students took part. Each school chose three posters to represent their classes and a panel of judges decided the top three winners overall.
The 2019 winning poster was created by Savannah McKenney, a student at Tynes Elementary School. Aside from having her poster made into a giant billboard along Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park, Savannah received a check for $100. The billboard will be displayed for month of February. Second place was awarded to Magali Barcenas from S Bryan Jennings Elementary, third place was awarded to Isabella Pasquale of Middleburg Elementary and honorable mention to Emma Collins from W.E. Cherry Elementary School.
