Three Northwest Catholic students placed in the top 10 of the Connecticut Fair Housing Center’s 2016 Fair Housing Poster Contest, out of over 100 entries submitted from across Connecticut. Sydney Samele ’17 of New Hartford took 2nd place, Yeji Jang ’18 of West Simsbury took 6th place, and Mary Velazquez ’19 of Southington took 7th place.
The theme of the contest was Equity vs. Equality and entries were judged on the clarity of that theme in the poster, as well as the poster’s overall concept, neatness, and creativity.
As the runner up, Samele will receive a $300 cash prize and will be honored at the Loving Dinner Awards on April 21, 2016. All entries will be featured in a Gallery Display at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.
“It is wonderful that our students were able to participate and receive such high recognition in a visual arts contest that truly fuses our students’ artistic skills and creative vision with the mission of our Catholic school,” said Beth Oates ’94, Dean of Students and Chair of the Fine & Performing Arts Department.
