COUNTY CLERK, SHERIFF AND SURROGATE
ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE
IN THE ‘MY COUNTY’ POSTER CONTEST

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, County Sheriff Shaun Golden and County Surrogate Rosemarie Peters are inviting all fourth grade students in the County to enter the ‘My County’ poster contest sponsored by the Constitutional Officers Association of New Jersey. This contest is designed to commemorate County Government Month (April 1-30, 2018).

Since the majority of fourth graders study the State of New Jersey as part of their social studies curriculum, all school principals in Monmouth County are being asked to get each fourth grade student involved by creating his or her own poster. The posters created should depict special and unique aspects of Monmouth County and how they relate to County Government.

The County Clerk, County Sheriff, and County Surrogate will select the winning posters from the entries in their county. The top three poster winners will receive prizes. Nine posters will receive honorable mention and each of the twelve posters will be on display in the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office.

Please mail or deliver posters to the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office at 33 Mechanic St., Freehold, NJ 07728 no later than Tuesday, May 1, 2018. They must be on standard 22″ X 28″ poster boards with the name of Monmouth County at the top of the poster in 4-inch letters with black marker. The student’s name, teacher’s name and school need to be printed neatly in the lower right hand corner on the back of the poster.

If you have any questions regarding the poster contest, please call the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office at 732-431-7324, ext. 8739.
