Re: "Be Kind to Animals" poster judges select "Best in Show"
|Jefferson County, Co. – Elicia Montoya, a 6th grader at Swanson Elementary in Arvada, was named grand prize winner of the 23rd annual Be Kind to Animals Week poster contest. The contest was hosted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control section in conjunction with national Be Kind to Animals Week.
Judges from Animal Control, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Foothills Animal Shelter judged more than 2,000 entries on creativity, artistry and message. Each participating classroom received first, second and third place prizes, and judges selected Elicia’s poster as “best in show” from among the first place winners.
Shown below, Elicia’s poster features an amazing montage of animals, with the message of “We All Count.”
Sheriff Ted Mink will present Elicia with her award on Thursday, May 17 at 2 p.m. at the Sheriff’s Office semi-annual exemplary awards ceremony at the Jefferson County Administration and Courts Building.
