Kid Governor Ellie’s “Express and Address Your Feelings” Poster Contest!

5th graders: submissions are due by Friday, May 5, 2023!

To achieve the third point of her platform, Kid Governor Ellie Mendez will create a digital mental health hub with uplifting messages and resources to inspire kids. One way she collected inspiring messages is by partnering with the Department of Children and Families on a statewide poster contest!

Ellie invited 5th graders to submit artwork that answers the question:

What is an uplifting or inspiring message for kids struggling with anxiety and depression?

Finalists’ posters will be shared in schools and facilities all around the state, and will also be featured on Ellie’s digital mental health hub!
