Due to COVID-19, we changed many of the normal processes for the Fair Housing Month Poster Contest recipients.
Under normal circumstances, the students have the opportunity to attend a Jefferson City Council meeting where they receive their awards and have their picture taken with the mayor. We hope to get the opportunity for a photo opp with the mayor later this summer.
In addition, the posters are normally on display at the Capital Mall during the month of April. In lieu of this for 2020, we have created the video below showcasing the great artwork we received.
