PATERSON, NJ – The winners will of Passaic County's 24th annual "My County Poster Calendar" will be announced at an award ceremony  at the Passaic County Police Academy in Wayne on January 30. The event, which is open to the public, is set to begin at 6:00 p.m.

This year's theme of women's suffrage came in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution which granted women the right to vote,

Recognizing that many fourth graders study women's suffrage as part of their curriculum Passaic County Clerk Danielle Ireland-Imhof expanded the content to include children at that grade level.

"The goal of this ongoing program," Ireland-Imhof said, "is to create a poster that reflects all that is special and unique about Passaic County: the history, places of local interest, recreational opportunities, as well as our ethnic and cultural diversity."

 A panel of female guest judges, including Passaic County Community College’s Art Professor Mary Dajnak, were tasked with selecting this category’s top winners.  “I was quite impressed to see so many students submit a poster regarding women’s suffrage.  It’s great to know that even 100 years later, the up and coming generation has a genuine appreciation for the difficult work accomplished by the suffragists long before us” Ireland-Imhof added. 

Copies of the posters will be on display at schools, libraries and government buildings throughout Passaic County and available to download at starting January 31, 2020.
