2018 Poster Contest Award Ceremony
12:00-12:25 pm, In the Community Room:
12:00-12:10 pm, MHS Acappella Choir: One of Marblehead High School's Acappella Choirs will perform several inspirational pieces, under the direction of Andrew Scoglio.
12:10-12:20 pm: Alex the Jester: This internationally-renowned artist will leave you howling with laughter, just as he has done with audiences across America, China, France, and Mexico, as well as on America’s Got Talent.
Young Alexander Feldman’s love of comedy & circus, music & magic, all leavened with more than a touch of mischief, gave birth to the impish Rascal that audiences worldwide now know and love as Alex the Jester.
12:20-12:25 pm: Awards for the best Sustainability Posters will be presented by State Rep. Lori Ehrlich. Marblehead Children were asked to write down what sustainability means to them, and to then create an illustration of their vision for a more sustainable future on a poster sheet that we provided. Here are some of our favorites.
The United Nations defines sustainability as “Meeting our needs now without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Examples of sustainable practices include: reducing waste, recycling, composting, walking and biking more and using cars less, consuming less energy and water, eating locally produced food, and buying local.
Contest winners will be chosen by our Education Action Group, based on the student’s understanding of the concept of sustainability, innovative thinking, and clear and creative imagery. The first, second, and third place winners, along with the honorable mentions, will be announced in early September. They will be prominently displayed at our Sustainability Fair, and then publicly honored. Winners will receive $100, $50, or $25 in Marblehead Money Gift Checks that can be used at local businesses. Honorable mentions will receive a Sustainable Marblehead T-Shirt or Magnet. Many of the contest entries will be displayed around town in the month leading up to the Fair.
