School-Wide Cartoon Contest & Gilder Lehrman Exhibit

I sought and was awarded a display grant by the Gilder Lehrman Instutite to host one of their professional quality traveling exhibits. From early December 2006 to early January 2007 we hosted the “Looking at Lincoln” display. In order to promote school and community awareness of this exhibit and political cartoons we conducted surveys amongst the student body and provided interpretation for the exhibit during the annual winter concert. View images of the display, survey, and interpretation here.

In conjunction with this exhibit I initiated the first school-wide Political Cartoon Contest which was judged by a university professor and prominent, nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist. View the cartoons here.
