National Adoption Day Poster Contest Winners

Students in Mrs. Tortorice's art classes participated in a poster contest for Allegheny County Children's Court Adoption Day. Students created posters describing what their family means to them. All of the posters were hung at the Courthouse for the month of November celebrating families. Several students at McAnnulty Elementary School as well as Whitehall Elementary school placed in the competition. The students were: Honesty Ojah, Alice Gregg, Mercy Salako, Sherya Chetri, Katelyn Weiss, Chelsey Weber, Rushana Lama, Joanna Elomba, Reece McKenzie, and Emma Mainarich. The winners were invited to a special ceremony with their family on Tuesday, November 19th, at the Family Courthouse Downtown. They received a copy of their poster, a certificate, and a family zoo pass. The students were also given the opportunity to tour a courtroom and act as a judge. Great job artists!
