Poppy Contest Winners

Poppy contest winners pose with their artwork.

Three high school art students received poppy poster recognition. 

They are pictured holding their winning posters. From (l-r): Madison Dugan (first place), Kaleigh Albanese (third place), and Janae Doty (second place). 

The contest is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary, Sheret Unit #35.  Event chairperson Joyce O'Conner and Auxiliary president Donna Boyce congratulated the students.  

The contest is held annually and includes schools from across the county.  The contest has very specific criteria that the students must follow in order to be considered. 

The posters will advance to the State Convention in Albany where they will be judged against a whole new group of posters from other counties.  The winner of that level will advance to be judged at the National Convention.  

The students will be invited to a dinner hosted by the Legion Auxiliary and receive a cash prize for their efforts.
