The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival is proud to announce that Ella Jones, a third grade student from John Newbery Elementary, is the 2015 Grand Prize Poster Contest Winner.
Ella’s poster is the new ‘O-FISH-al’ Festival poster and will be used to publicize the 25th Wenatchee River Salmon Festival throughout the region.
The Wenatchee River Salmon Festival staff had over 900 entries to choose from in selecting this year’s poster winner. The posters were based on Salmon Fest’s 2015 theme “Salmon Celebration” and were judged on the basis of creativity, artwork and use of the festival theme.
Congratulations also go to the 2015 Runners-Up:
The top three winners receive T-shirts with their poster imprinted on them, a trophy, plus their teachers receive art supply gift certificates. Additionally, all “Best of School” winners receive a medal.
