“United We Stand” Poster Contest
Ticket Price: Free
For Tickets, Contact: Venue

From February 15 to March 4, all ages are eligible to participate in Trumbull’s One Book One Town “United We Stand” poster contest, commemorating the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War. There are three entry categories: Grade school (grades 1-5); Teen (grades 6-12); and Adult.

The theme is based on the concept of strength in unity can be traced all the way back to one of Aesop's fables, in which he shows that sticks one by one may be readily broken, but cannot when several are bound together in a bundle.  Lincoln's “House Divided” Speech is linked to this universal theme and is inextricably connected to the U.S. Civil War. Pick up your poster application at the Main Library.

Completed posters must be returned to Trumbull Library Sunday, March 4, 5:00 p.m. Winners will be announced one week after the contest ends.

Over 20 events accompany our community-wide read of Charles Frazier's sweet and sorrowful Cold Mountain. For details, follow us on Twitter: @trumbulllibrary, 'like' us on Facebook, or visit
