Senior Katie Long was the overall winner of the 25th Anniversary of the River Sweep poster contest. She won a $500 check to use however she pleases, and her poster will be sent to six states.
“Her poster beautifully captured the idea we wanted to convey this year,” said Lisa Cochran, the coordinator of the contest. “I order 1,200 copies of the poster, and everyone who will go to Cincinnati will see it.”
The contest received slightly less than 2,000 entries among 72 counties. All posters were judged on how well the idea of River Sweep is captured.
Ripley High School has had students won the grand prize in 2010 and in 2012. This year we also had a 10th grade winner, the exchange student Hae Min Cho, and an 11th grade winner, Hannah Faber.
The River Sweep will be held on June 21st. To find out more information visit the website: ohioriversweep.org.
