County poster contest under way

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – The county’s constitutional officers are hosting the 21st annual children’s’ poster contest to bring an awareness to that function of county government.

The "My County" Poster Contest is open to fourth-grade students.

“We encourage students to think about what is special about Cape May County government and draw it,” County Clerk Rita Marie Fulginiti said in a news release. “Any poster drawing that relates to any aspect of Cape May County or county government is acceptable. Past contest winners have been highly creative with posters depicting our county's coastal, agricultural, services, marine and recreational venues as well as county government services our citizens rely upon."

Many fourth-grade teachers encourage students to create posters for the contest as an in-class project. Other students create their posters at home.  

Students are eligible to submit only one entry per student.  Group entries are not accepted in this contest.

Submit entries before 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 8.

Twelve winning posters will be selected by a panel of judges and will be displayed in the courthouse lobby in April to commemorate County Government Month. 

Winners will be invited to participate in the My County Poster Contest Awards Ceremony Wednesday, April 24, beginning at 3:30 p.m. in the Cape May County Courts Facility. Prizes will be given out.

The posters will be featured on a 2014 color poster calendar distributed to the winners and next year’s 2014 fourth grade class. 

Entries must be delivered to the Cape May County Clerk’s Office at 7 North Main St. in Cape May Court House.

Fulginiti, Sheriff Gary G. Schaffer and Surrogate Susan Sheppard are sponsoring the annual event.
