Posters are displayed in the library’s second-floor gallery.

The Verona Public Library’s “Youth Artists for Social Justice” poster contest invited Verona residents in grades K to 12 to design a poster that promotes inclusion and acceptance. From abstract art to realistic sketches, digital art to photography, kids were free to interpret the theme as they wished. Entries were submitted and judged based on age group: high school (grades 9-12), middle school (grades 5-8) and elementary (grades K-4). The library is proud to announce the winners of the contest.

Grand Prize Winners

  • Matthew Calabrese, Grade 3
  • Tyler Boston, Grade 5

Honorable Mention Winners

  • Maren McCabe, Grade 6
  • Chloe Wynne, Grade 6

Grand prize winners received a gift card to The Guac Spot, and Artist Frame Gallery has generously offered to frame the top three designs. The winners are now displayed both in the library and in local establishments.

The Library’s Diversity Task Force members served as judges of the contest and narrowing it down to a few winners was not an easy feat. We hope you’ll agree that we have some very talented and compassionate young artists in our town. Please visit our gallery on the second floor to enjoy their work. Thank you to everyone who participated.
