All 12 winners, along with their families, friends and school personnel will be invited to participate in the My County Poster Contest Awards Ceremony taking place April 10 at 3:30 p.m. in the Cape May County Courts Facility.

The first-place winner will also receive a $100 gift card plus a pizza party with his/her homeroom classmates, second and third-place winners will each receive a $50 gift card.
“The themes of this year’s entries were very creative,” Fulginiti stated. “Aviation, U.S. Coast Guard, our natural environment, the Cape May County Park/Zoo, beaches, marshes, and sea life were among this year’s clever entries.”
The annual event is hosted by the Constitutional Officers during April – National County Government Month to bring awareness of the function of county government to fourth graders, who regularly study the topic as part of their curriculum.  
The winning posters will be displayed in the Court House Lobby during April to commemorate County Government Month and will be featured on a 2020 color poster calendar distributed to the winners and 2019 fourth grade class.
