JERSEY CITY FIFTH-GRADER NAMED GRAND PRIZE WINNER OF THE ANNUAL PATH HOLIDAY POSTER CONTEST

A poster displaying a peace symbol on a holiday wreath, created by Jersey City fifth-grader Khloey Lam, today was selected as the grand prize winner of PATH’s annual Holiday Poster Contest.

The winning poster will be displayed in PATH stations and on rail cars throughout the holiday season. It was unveiled during a ceremony today at the Journal Square Transportation Center in Jersey City. In addition to Khloey, who attends P.S. 25, Natalie Spiska of P.S 37 was named the winner in the grade 6-8 category and Nathalia Acosta of P.S. 27 was chosen in the K-2 category. Their creations will also be displayed in PATH stations.

The competition this year was intense: more than 500 holiday posters were submitted by Jersey City students. Today’s ceremony marks the 29th year that PATH and the Jersey City Board of Education’s Visual and Performing Arts Department have partnered to produce the poster contest.

“This is an annual highlight for PATH,” said PATH General Manager/Director Michael Marino. “I’d like to thank all of the teachers and talented students who work so hard in making this contest such a wonderful holiday tradition, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the Jersey City Board of Education for years to come.”

This year’s event featured a musical performance by the Psaltis Chamber Choir of the Jersey City ARTS Vocal Program, in the concourse area of the Journal Square station, and PATH officials and representatives of Jersey City Public Schools honored Khloey, Nathalia, and Natalie at an awards luncheon at PATH headquarters.

Each of the winners received four tickets to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and complimentary 10-trip PATH SmartLink cards provided by the Port Authority to get the winners and their families to and from the show.

The winners were also awarded $50 American Express gift cards and art supplies from the Jersey City Visual and Performing Arts Department.
