Student art honored for Illinois bicentennial
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) —
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum announced the winners from the Illinois Bicentennial Art Contest on Lincoln’s birthday Monday.
The contest invited students from kindergarten through high school to design posters about the state's 200th birthday.
We spoke to two winners who were filled with emotions after hearing they won.
"Overwhelmed," contest winner Hannah Handzo said. "I did not expect to win first at all. I normally don't expect to win anything. It's like a monumental thing. I've never been able to participate in anything like this."
The top designs are on display as of today and will stay there throughout 2018.
