Genoa-Kingston sixth- and seventh-grade students participated in an annual Poppy Poster Contest sponsored by the Bayard Brown Unit 337 and the Genoa American Legion Auxiliary. Students designed a poster with a red poppy showing the meaning of Memorial Day and honoring fallen veterans. Cash prizes were awarded the top four winners from each grade level. Janet Bacon, Department of Illinois historian and teacher Carol Hencken have been offering this opportunity to students for many years. Pictured (from left) are Bacon; Hencken; seventh-graders Rylie Stoffregen (first), Bella Rieff (honorable mention), Alahna Siegwarth (second) and Olivia Moore (third); sixth-graders Ezra Roehrig (third), Mia Wise (second), Mady King (first) and Alexis Roland (honorable mention); and Principal Craig Butcher.
