PSE partnered with the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce by awarding a $1000 scholarship to the winner of the contest to create the Chamber's Grand Old 4th poster. The 2017 winner is Bainbridge High School junior, Karena Klinkenberg, awarded her check at the recent Chamber awards dinner. The contest was open to all Bainbridge Island students, grades 1 through 12. PSE is proud to sponsor this new tradition for the second year and will continue doing so in future years.
More than 150 entries of original art were received this year, with the winning design chosen by a panel of chamber staff and local artists, photographers, and graphic designers.
