GHS Student Wins Statewide Poster Contest

The Connecticut Council of Language Teachers (CT COLT) recently announced the winners of their 36th Annual Poster Contest, and first prize in the high school competition was awarded to Greenwich High School freshman Hannon Stern.

GHS World Language Teacher Ms. Elizabeth Fancher said, “GHS World Language students have
a long and successful history of placing at the state contest. Congratulations to Hannon for her
outstanding work of art.”

Each year the poster contest invites individual students to submit original artwork that addresses a
theme. This year’s theme is “languages celebrate our differences.” This year’s contest had 157 entries
from over 40 high schools.

CT COLT Organizational Director, AATF Ms. Melissa Tubbs shared, “It was truly a pleasure to see so
many beautiful works of art. Choosing the winners of this year’s contest was a difficult task for the
judging committee. Every student who submitted a poster should be commended.”
