BOP poster-contest winner announced

PLATTSBURGH — A Morrisonville Elementary School fourth-grader is this year’s winner of the Battle of Plattsburgh’s 16-th annual poster contest.

According to a press release, Skylar Staley’s entry “represents a militiaman with musket expressing both fear and courage with our flag as background.” The image will appear on all admission buttons for September’s Commemoration events.

Daren Purisic from Rouses Point Elementary School placed second, and Marlie Sample of Mooers Elementary School placed third.

First-, second- and third-place winners each receive a cash award of $100, $75 or $50. All three posters will be framed and displayed at the Battle of Plattsburgh Museum. The three winners will also be invited to ride in September’s mega-parade.

The entries totaled 268 from eight area elementary schools and home-schools. In August, many posters will be displayed at Champlain Centre Mall, North Country Teacher Resource Center and the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts as well as at downtown merchants.

The purchase of a $10 button includes admission to all events from Sept. 7 through 15.
