poster contest

Each year the VFLA sponsors a poster contest, available to students of any age whose teacher is a VFLA member. We choose a different theme each year; the 2018 theme was "Peace is the language we must speak." (Pope Francis)

There are three categories: elementary, middle, and high school. Posters are judged by members of the artistic community; there is a first, second, and third place awarded in each category.

The winning posters are displayed at the annual VFLA conference in March. Winners receive a small cash prize and a packet of their poster image on blank notecards. They are also invited to a reception at the State House in late spring; the Governor reads a proclamation, and students have the opportunity to have their picture taken with the Governor and any members of the state legislature in attendance.
