2007 Mayor's Cherry Blossom poster contest winners on display

Each year, DC Public School students are invited to submit posters to the Cherry Blossom Poster Contest.

Winning posters featuring this year's theme, "Cherry Blossom: Saluting a World Class City, Communities and Friendship" were on display at the National Building Museum on Saturday, 31 March 2007, during the 2007 National Cherry Blossoms Festval Family Day Kick-off and Opening Ceremony.

Some will also be displayed at the Southwest Airlines’ Terminal - BWI Airport, for at least two weeks.

I arrived at the kick-off shortly before 12 noon and left about an hour later for the Smithsonian 41st Annual Kite Festival. And, therefore, did not photograph the official opening ceremony, during which time, between 4 and 5:30 pm, winnters of the 2007 Cherry Blossom Poster Contest were to have been announced.

However, I am inclined to believe that this particular poster (on the left) is amongst its top winners.

Here is a press release regarding the 2006 Cherry Blossom Poster Contest winners.
