The winners were honored at a ceremony at the new Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Justice Building in Newark last week. Each student’s artwork was displayed at the ceremony and each of the top 15 winners received a medal with their name engraved on the back, a framed certificate, a t-shirt, a mug, and an opportunity to talk about their poster and what inspired them to create their unique artwork.
