The poster contest is open to all Victoria County fifth-grade students in public, private and home schools. Each school will select 10 posters as contest finalists.
The winner of the Peopleís Choice Award will receive recognition and a collection of prizes at the Black History Month Heritage Festival on Saturday, February 10, at the Victoria Community Center. The public is invited to attend the free event that will also include food and entertainment.
