Congratulations to Senior, Jasmine Hernandez!

Jasmine Hernandez, a senior at Mason High School, won third prize in a poster contest, "Celebrate 100 Years of Women's Suffrage.... VOTE!" sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Lansing Area. The LWVLA is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging the informed and active participation of citizens in government. Jasmine's poster will be used to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote and also to promote voting in the November election. Below is a photo of Jasmine with her poster as well as her artist statement in which she explains why she entered the contest and why she made the poster she did. Congratulations, Jasmine! Mason is proud of you!

Here is Jasmine's artist statement:

"I decided to enter the contest because my art teacher, Mrs. Combs, recommended it to me, and we thought it was something I could show off more of my artistic abilities, while showing my support for the women's suffrage.

Alongside with the poster itself, I made it that way because I wanted to create the look of posters back in that era, with somewhat of a modernized feel to it. Red, yellow and blue were the main theme which symbolized the most importance throughout those posters. The woman in my poster shows how women used to be silenced throughout the years. They never had a chance to speak for their rights, but as time goes on, women are able to speak out. [note: the translucent flower on her lips symbolizes the women slowly breaking free from being silenced]"
