Poster Contest 2018 @ SPCA of Luzerne County
Mar 19 @ 12:00 pm – Apr 27 @ 4:00 pm
Poster Contest 2018 @ SPCA of Luzerne County | Wilkes-Barre | Pennsylvania | United States

We’ve been fortunate to partner with Marquis Art & Frame for over 20 years to have this community event open to all Luzerne County students with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes for ALL grades K-12 exceeding more than $1,500 in total!

Our Annual Poster Contest runs hand-in-hand with “Be Kind to Animals Week” which is May 6th – May 12th this year.  We invite you to stop by on Saturday, May 5th from 12-2pm for an Open House where we display students’ artwork throughout our shelter! What a fun way to get our Luzerne County students to stop by and visit their local animal shelter –

This contest provides an opportunity in the classroom and at home for participants to really think about what it means to be kind to animals and how they might use art to create a visual representation of animal themes. We hope that by sponsoring this contest, quality of life for our local animal population will get better with every generation as being kind goes a long way in many aspects of life.

All entries could be submitted to the SPCA of Luzerne County or Marquis Art and Frame by Friday, April 27th.  Please find our Poster Contest Flyer and Entry Forms attached.   Thank you— we look forward to seeing what creativity comes through our doors this year!
