Giving credit to the student artists

Artist attributions: if you're using a laptop with Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, the name of each student artist should appear as you float your cursor over each poster. On an iPhone, tap each image twice. 

The winning designs

Eduardo Chavez won top honors this year with his striking image of a young African American man in front of a city skyline.

There were so many wonderful posters to choose from. These other five designs were runners up and are also available as posters.
