Battle of Plattsburgh poster contest wraps up April 24

PLATTSBURGH - The Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Committee is again encouraging all fourth grade students, including those being homeschooled, to submit one poster to their art or homeroom teacher.

The poster must be in color and no larger than 12 inches by 18 inches. The winning poster will appear on all admission buttons for the September 2009 Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Weekend. Savings bonds, made possible by TD Banknorth, will be awarded to first, second and third place winners. Last year's first place winner was Ashley Orzech from Morrisonville Elementary School.

The judges will look for posters that show creativity and focus on key incidents of the land and naval battle.

The deadline for entries to be received at North Country Teacher Resource Center is Friday, April 24.

For additional information, call 561-4296.
