MILLBURN, NJ - Amid the festivities of week three of Millburn LIVE a special ceremony took place on the steps of City Hall Friday evening. Mayor Cheryl Burstein unveiled the winning design in the Banner Art Contest and honored its creator Millburn High School tenth grader Chloe Nimmer.   

"I never thought I'd be able to win something so big. I've entered a lot of other contests and was starting to lose faith in myself." Nimmer said. "When I won, I was baffled by the results. I am really proud of how far I've come."

Her banner design will be displayed around Millburn and encourage residents and visitors to "Shop, Dine, Enjoy" Downtown Millburn in vibrant orange, lime, purple and blue hues. Nimmer also designed the third place entry.

Art teacher Kathy Reilly's students also contributed to the vast entry pool.  

Bromirski also acknowledged the event organizers, "We are very grateful to the Downtown Millburn Development Alliance and Jillian Moritz for honoring not only the winner but also the runners-up with a beautiful display.  This is a real honor for the digital arts program."

Daniel Moore designed the second place banner and  Lila Tuman, Daniela Akoh, William Cerulli, Chloe Zegas
