The Verona Public Library’s “Youth Artists for Social Justice” poster contest invited Verona citizens in grades K to 12 to style and design a poster that promotes inclusion and acceptance. From abstract artwork to real looking sketches, electronic art to images, kids were cost-free to interpret the theme as they wished. Entries were being submitted and judged based on age team: higher faculty (grades 9-12), center college (grades 5-8) and elementary (grades K-4). The library is proud to announce the winners of the contest.

The Library’s Variety Activity Force customers served as judges of the contest and narrowing it down to a couple winners was not an effortless feat. We hope you’ll agree that we have some really talented and compassionate youthful artists in our town. Make sure you visit our gallery on the second floor to enjoy their function. Thank you to everyone who participated.
