Winners Announced in 2017 Geography Awareness Postcard Contest

This year’s Geography Awareness Week theme was “The Geography of Civil Rights Movements.” We had over 600 entries from schools all across Pennsylvania. First place winners will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Second, Third and Honorable Mentions all receive awards as well. Below are the winners and Honorable Mentions in each category.
