Poster & Essay Contest

About the Contest


 The annual Dublin Pride Week Poster Contest is open to all K-12 students in Dublin.  This contest is a project of the Dublin Pride Week Committee and the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) Dublin/San Ramon chapter. This year the City of Dublin marks its 35th year as a city.  We have incorporated the anniversary into this year’s poster and essay contest.  This year’s poster theme is "Celebrate Dublin the Emerald City”. The question for the essay contest is “What environmental actions can Dubliners take in the next 35 years to reduce our impact on the environment?”  All Dublin students are encouraged to participate.
