FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 18, 2018) – First Lady Glenna Bevin is excited to launch the 2018 Kentucky Derby Poster Contest online with the help of Kentucky Interactive. High school students throughout the Commonwealth will have the opportunity to create the Governor’s Derby Poster, to be displayed in the State Capitol for years to come.
Mrs. Bevin asks high school students to design the poster with this question in mind: “What does the Kentucky Derby look like to you?”
“Matt and I were so pleased with the outcome of last year’s contest,” said First Lady Glenna Bevin. “It is very important to give students the chance to use their creative skills for a greater cause. It empowers them and gives them confidence to share their own ideas.”
The three contest finalists will be invited to attend a luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion on March 10, 2018, where the winner will be revealed.
The winner will have the opportunity to attend the Kentucky Derby Festival Luncheon and will receive a $500 scholarship. Second place will receive a $300 scholarship and third place a $200 scholarship from #WeAreKY, Inc. Foundation.
The deadline for submission is February 28, 2018. For full details, please visit firstlady.ky.gov.
