We are excited to announce that our annual poster contest [Afterschool is Cool!] is back!
The contest’s purpose is to invite youth to creatively share what they like best about their afterschool program, which in turn helps us engage the community in our efforts to best support providers. The contest is open to all kindergarten through 12th-grade students participating in an afterschool program in Washington County. Judges for the contest include Washington County Commissioner Jerry Willey and local well-known artists, Elizabeth Higgins, and Ed Labadie. Artwork will be displayed, and winners will be announced at the Afterschool is Cool! Showcase at the Walters Cultural Center in Hillsboro on February 6, 2024, from 6pm to 8pm. Winning posters in two school categories, K + Elementary & Middle + High will receive gift card prizes plus their artwork and the provider organization will be featured on Tri-Met buses and benches!
