At each participating school, teachers act as judges and select one poster per school, created by a third-, fourth- or fifth-grade student.

The winning posters are submitted to the local chapters of the SAR.

The Withlacoochee Chapter selected Caleb Herndon from Inverness Primary School as the first-place winner and Amara Piliouris from Homosassa Elementary School as the third-place winner. Herndon received $75 and the Outstanding Citizen certificate, and his poster advances to the Florida Society level of judging.

Cobb received $50 and a certificate, and Piliouris received $25 and a certificate. More than 360 students participated in the contest.
