Countdown Calendar & Progress Tracker

Get ready for the Churchill Challenge and countdown to the race day with our fun progress tracker!


Poster Contest

We need your amazing art skills to create inspiring messages of support and encouragement for all of our participants. We ask that you create a fun poster that will help boost runners' energy. You can use a brilliant drawing, poetic words, or a bold, brightly colored "Run!" in the largest letters you can draw! Posters will be displayed in the hallways in the days leading up to the event to help remind everyone to be a part of this fan favorite event, and you will also want to look for posters along the winding race route on March 30th.

  • Prizes: A poster winner will be recognized from each grade, as well as one winner from staff submissions. All artists who submit a poster will receive a fun new piece of Bobcat spirit wear commissioned for our Churchill Challenge.
  • Specs: Posters need to be 22" X 28". Artists may use most mediums such as paint, pencils, pastels, crayons, and markers, but computer generated drawings and text are not allowed.

Posters are due Friday, February 22, and can be dropped off in the box in front of the library. Each poster must include the artist's name, classroom, teacher, and grade on the back of the poster. 

If you have questions, please contact Marci at [email protected].
