MC Government Month Poster Contest Winners
TOP FIVE: This poster by Littlebrook School fourth-grader Maya Rogart was among the winners of the 2022 “County Government Month” poster contest. More than 70 submissions were received by the Mercer County Office of Economic Development, the contest host.
Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes has announced the winners of the 2022 “County Government Month” poster contest. The contest, inspired by the National Association of Counties County Government Month designation, promotes awareness of Mercer County’s history, progress, culture, and diversity, and was open to local fourth-grade students.
The top five submissions are: Ben Hofmann, Parkway Elementary School, Ewing; Kayleigh Hughes, University Heights Elementary School, Hamilton; Logan Pablacio, Perry Drew School, East Windsor; Maya Rogart, Littlebrook School, Princeton; and Krystina Stansbury, Paul Robeson Charter School, Trenton.
“While I, as your county executive, believe that Mercer County is the greatest, it is refreshing to see that sentiment reflected through the eyes of our children in the more than 70 poster submissions we received,” said Hughes. “Congratulations to all of the participants, and to the teachers and parents who encourage and engage this bright generation, you have my thanks and gratitude.”
The winners were presented award certificates, and all five students and their classmates received a pizza party celebration at their school. Winning posters are on display at Mercer County Library Headquarters Branch in Lawrence. More than 70 submissions were received by the County Office of Economic Development, contest host, and all students who submitted a poster received a certificate of Honorable Mention.
