Middle School Division

  • 1st Place – Megan Guercio

Entries for the contest have traditionally been coordinated by middle school art teacher Christina Klein and this year there were 25 entries from middle school. The students' enthusiasm for the project rubbed off on their siblings at other buildings to result in four entries from Windermere Boulevard, three entries from Smallwood Drive and two entries from Amherst Central High School.

The poster contest is open to all K-12 students in Western New York. It's a fun way for students to showcase their artistic talents in an automotive venue.
