Congratulations to the 2022-23 Recipients RI Poster Contest Grants:
Winman JH, Wickford MS, Tiverton MS, Nathanael Greene MS, Davisville MS, Bain MS, Monsignor Clarke School, and Cole MS; North Kingstown HS, and Lincoln HS
We are so proud of the quality of these projects!
BAIN MS, Art Teacher Lindsay Burrows “Students were excited to create artwork based on this topic and worked incredibly hard on their posters. They were excited to hang their posters around the school. Staff members were very complimentary about students’ artwork and thought it was a great campaign.“What does a healthy relationship look like?” was a very relevant topic to our students. They were excited to brainstorm ideas about preventing teen dating violence. Our Faculty and staff thought the posters were incredibly moving and important. During art class, students are allowed to talk to each other while they work and by creating these posters, many conversations about relationships emerged. Students had no problems coming up with ideas for what healthy relationships look like and ideas for their posters, however, they could give several examples of peers that were in unhealthy relationships.”

We used a judging system of five points for first for first, second third fifth third two for fourth and one for fifth. Our judges were two middle school art teachers and high school health teachers. We also used the expertise of Miss Kelly Grennan Smith, who has been on the Lindsay Ann Burke memorial fund poster judging since it’s inception…..We had two $100. winners, two $50 winners and four $25. winners.”
