JHMS Students Seek to Dismantle Discrimination

On Wednesday, May 23rd Jackson Hole Middle School students will showcase work they created to describe and discourage different forms of discrimination.  

Through visual and narrative descriptions students identified forms of discrimination, the problems it causes people in achieving the American Dream, and possible solutions.  Additionally students identified a local nonprofit that works to end the type of discrimination and/or help people who are facing it.

Students then sold raffle tickets to raise money for local, national, and international nonprofit organizations, as well as for student prize money, raising over $12,000.

On May 23, 11:40 a.m.- 12:00 noon the the top 20 poster designs will be announced.  The winning artists will be awarded prizes and will present a donation to the executive director of the nonprofit they identified.
