Nashoba Tech junior Cheyanne Thistle of Pepperell holds her Honorable Mention certificate as Middlesex District Attorney shows Cheyanne’s poster in the Middlesex Partnership for Youth’s annual Poster Contest.

 

            WESTFORD — A junior at Nashoba Tech was a runner-up in this year’s Middlesex Partnership for Youth annual Poster Project, sponsored by MPY and Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan.

            Cheyanne Thistle of Pepperell, a student in the Design & Visual Communications program at Nashoba Tech, received an Honorable Mention award for her poster, called “Challenge,” in the contest, the theme of which was “Challenge Yourself — Be Resilient.”

The annual Poster Project encourages students to design a poster that shares a positive message for middle-school and high-school students across Middlesex County.  The theme was chosen to promote messages of learning to cope with adversity and hardship, and to encourage teens to embrace new challenges as an opportunity to grow and succeed in new ways.

Nearly 100 posters from students across Middlesex County were submitted.

“We know that kids listen to other kids,” Ryan said. “Through this contest each year, students are able to share inspiring and motivational messages that promote perseverance over adversity with their peers. “This year’s theme is especially important. Students are facing more and more pressures. By encouraging resiliency, we are giving them the tools to find positive and healthy ways to face the obstacles they encounter both at school and at home.”

Cheyanne is an honor-roll student at Nashoba Tech. She won last year’s MPY poster contest. To see her poster in this year’s contest, visit
