2013 Choose Respect student poster contest opens

As part of Governor Parnell’s Choose Respect Initiative, Alaskan students -- pre-school through high school-- have been invited to participate in this year’s iRespect poster contest. Youths are asked to send a positive message about respect and healthy relationships by creating a poster depicting this year’s theme, “iRespect,” with appropriate imagery and wording.

Teachers are asked to select a finalist from each classroom to submit to the Governor’s Office by Dec. 10. The winning artwork will be professionally printed and promoted along with the Choose Respect marches in March 2013. The winner’s classroom will win an ice cream party sponsored by Jewel Lake Tastee Freez, anywhere in Alaska.

Questions can be directed to Erin Patterson-Sexson 907-269-7450 or erin.patterson-sexson@alaska.gov .
