American Legion Poster Contest Winners Announced
All Integrated Technology students had the opportunity to participate in New London's American Legion Auxiliary Unit digital poster contest. Students were asked by the organization to design a poster representing members of the American military. During Integrated Technology, students learned how to use Google Drawing to create their posters. Following discussions of copyright and legal use of images, students searched for appropriate rights-cleared images from various sources that promoted the American military, freedom, or patriotism. Once the posters were complete, submissions were judged by the local organization, and this week the winners were announced. The top three posters each received a cash prize. With so many fantastic entries, the organization could not stop with just three. In addition, seven posters were given an honorable mention. View all winning posters below. The top ten posters will also be displayed at local businesses in New London. Congratulations to all of our winners! We look forward to working with this wonderful organization again.
