ACLU Sponsors Poster Contest to Mark 150th Anniversary of the Constitution
The ACLU on this day announced a national poster contest to mark the 150th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, which is to be celebrated this year. The contest is open to all artists, and the design of posters should “illustrate the significance of the Bill of Rights.” Prize-winning posters will be reproduced and circulated around the country.
The prize for First Place is $50, and the designers of the two runner-up posters will receive $25 each. Judges for the contest include the famous painter John Sloan and the noted political cartoonist Rollin Kirby.
