Character Counts! Poster (and Video) Contest

The CHARACTER COUNTS! in Glenview Committee has announced their Annual Poster (and Video) Contest for 2017.  A sheet with contest information, rules and entry form will go home in backpacks today.

This year, the Poster Contest is for students in grades K-4.  Students in grade 5 are invited to participate in the Video Context.  In addition to the Six Pillars, students also have the opportunity to choose to illustrate how the Jackman Park Bear – turning 100 years old this year – contributes to good character in Glenview.

The contest is supported by the Kiwanis Club of Glenview-Northbrook and monetary awards in the amount of $75 for first place, $50 for second place and $25 for third place will be presented to the prize winners in the grades K-2 category and the grades 3-4 category at the Village of Glenview Board of Trustees meeting on October 17, 2017.

District 30 had several contest winners last year.  We look forward to see what our Wildcats create this year!
