As part of the Nevada Day celebrations and to help kick-off the celebration of Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, Governor Brian Sandoval launched his annual statewide poster and essay contest for Nevada school children in October. This year’s theme focuses on Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, celebrating 150 years in statehood. The contest, which was open to all Nevada school children in grades K through 12, in district, charter, private or home schools, includes four categories depending on grade level.
