Norris Announces Call for Submission for Annual High School Memorial Day Poster Contest

***Call For Submissions***

Assemblyman Mike Norris (R,C-Lockport) is encouraging high school students to participate in his Annual Memorial Day Poster Contest to honor the contribution of our nation’s military and veterans. The theme of the poster contest is “Freedom Isn’t Free,” however students are welcome to celebrate the service of our military heroes and veterans using their creativity.

“As high school students prepare for their future, this contest is a wonderful opportunity to take stock of the privileges we are afforded by our military and veterans. Their incredible service to our nation has allowed the rest of us to live freely in the greatest nation on earth and pursue our dreams, whether those be in higher education, starting a career, having a family or also choosing to serve in our Armed Forces,” said Norris. “Because of the bravery of our military, we have these choices, but it is important to remember that our freedom is not free. It has come at a precious cost. Memorial Day is a day to remember the true cost of our freedom and by hosting this annual art contest, I am inviting students to join me in remembering this sacrifice and to honor it in a new creative way for our community.”

All submissions must be received at the assemblyman’s office at 8180 Main Street in Clarence by close of business on Friday, May 17. Physical posters should be sized on 8X14 inch paper or 11X17 inch paper, yet they can be created using any artistic medium including digital (although they should be printed before they are submitted).

Students should be in grades nine through twelve and may enter individually or through their class or school. Winners will be announced around Memorial Day by the assemblyman. For any questions, please contact Assemblyman Norris’ office by emailing or calling 1-716-839-4691.
