Lafayette High’s Laura Champion was named winner of the Missouri League of Women Voters’ statewide high school poster contest. Champion was surprised by Missouri League representatives on Nov. 19 and presented with a $500 cash stipend.
Champion’s poster, a colorful work of art, shows a portrait of a young woman wearing an “I Voted” sticker, gazing into the distance. The words “OUR TURN” are written across the top of the poster.
Champion’s poster will be sent to every Missouri high school by the League of Women Voters of Missouri to inspire young adults to vote.
