Senior Sydney Smith's poster was chosen as the winner in the 9-12th grade category of the Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest. "This is my last year, so I wanted to do my best. I tried to think of something original. I thought of a trash can and Jesus. The idea is that, sometimes, Jesus kind of gets thrown away, metaphorically, in favor of some cool stuff," Sydney explained to the Clarion Herald.
The Council of Catholic School Cooperative Clubs sponsors the annual Keep Christ in Christmas poster, essay, and poetry contest. The Office of Catholic Schools selected winners in three divisions: grades 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.
