The public has been invited to vote on student-made bumper stickers submitted to a contest sponsored by the Town of East Hampton Anti-Bias Task Force. They are on display in the foyer of Town Hall.
The competition is intended to encourage students to reflect on diversity and increase their understanding of the value of differences in a respectful and civil society. Designs are meant to challenge prejudice, stereotyping, or other forms of discrimination, and promote fairness, respect, caring, family pride, self-awareness, empowerment, and the comfort and joy that can be found within human diversity.
Students submitted their ideas between Nov. 15 and March 2. Prizes will be awarded to one submission in each of three age categories (6 to 9, 10 to 13, and 14 to 18), and the overall winner of the three finalists will receive a grand prize worth $300. Winners will be announced at next Thursday’s meeting of the town board.
