A cash prize (1st place: $25.00, 2nd place: $20.00 and 3rd place: $15.00) will be awarded in each of three divisions (High School, Middle School, and Elementary). The winning posters will be displayed at the Spring Convention. The winners will be honored at a reception at the State House in Montpelier in late spring, 2014.
