One hundred fourth grade students at Brockport’s Fred W. Hill School entered the annual Erie Canal Poster Contest this year.
The winning posters for 2017 are:
The contest is run by the Walk/Bike Brockport Action Group in conjunction with the annual Low Bridge High Water Festival (to be held May 11-13).
Fourth graders participate in the contest because they study New York state history including the Erie Canal. The posters depict scenes along the canal.
Local artists Alicia Fin, Lori Skoog, and Helen Smagorinsky served as judges for the poster contest.
You can see all of the posters at the following locations in the village:
A Different Path Gallery (winning posters)
Adore Hair Studio
Lift Bridge Book Shop
Red Bird Café and Gift Shop
The Stewart Insurance Agency
Brockport Village Hall
First, second and third place winners will get gift certificates to the Lift Bridge Book Shop. All six winners will receive posters signed by Helen Smagorinsky and donated by Trustee/Deputy Mayor Bill Andrews. Prizes will be awarded by Mayor Margay Blackman on May 13 at the Welcome Center between 11 a.m.-noon.
