I know it’s been a while since we had our first College Park Day, but as promised, the College Park Day organizing committee, has recently announced a recognition award ceremony for the poster contest winners from City’s four the participating schools.

The students will receive recognition awards from the Mayor and Council in a special Council session, which will be held at 8pm on February 8, 2011 at the Council Chamber (2nd floor), 4500 Knox Rd, College Park, MD 20740

The council meeting is open to public, so please feel free to attend this special session, with your families and friends.

At the organizing committee, we much appreciate the hard work of the students who took part in the contest. We also thank the school principals and their school staff for kind help and cooperation in making the poster contest a success.
