Junior Austin Rice, of LaGrange Park, took the Grand Prize and will receive a $250 gift card. Senior Josh Seaman, of Western Springs, is a two-time second place winner, having earned second place in last year’s contest; he will receive $100 gift card. Their artwork will be displayed on the Illinois Children’s Mental Health Partnership website beginning on May 8, which is National Mental Health Awareness Day.
Paraeducator Jamie Ormond says, “Students put in a tremendous amount of time and effort into these pieces. LT is proud to crown multiple poster winners.”
