Solar Eclipse Committee Announces Poster Contest Winners from Pennyrile Area Schools

solar eclipseHOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (10/17/13) – Winners of the second annual solar eclipse poster contest have been selected. The contest was sponsored by the Hopkinsville Solar Eclipse Committee and included fourth and fifth grade students of Caldwell, Christian, Todd and Trigg County elementary schools.

Winners’ posters will also be displayed in the lobby of the HCC library with an overall winning entry to be chosen by a judging panel of college faculty and local citizens experienced in art and astronomy.
