Four Northwest Catholic students placed in the top 10 of the Connecticut Fair Housing Center’s 2017 Fair Housing Poster Contest. The students’ work was selected out of 100+ entries submitted from across Connecticut. Yeji Yang ’17 of West Simsbury took 3rd place. Mary Velazquez ’19 of Southington took 6th place. Sydney Samele ’17 of New Hartford took 9th place. And Yiwei Yuan ’17 of West Hartford took 10th place.
The theme of the contest was A Loving CommUNITY, and entries were judged on the clarity of that theme as well as the poster’s design and creativity. All entries were 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 McCarthy ’94, Dean of Students and Chair of the Fine & Performing Arts Department.
