Voltaire College hosted the prize giving ceremony for the poster competition that the municipality organized to announce the big spring event: the Floralies.

The mayor, Vincent Gaudy, accompanied by Francis Ricarte, delegate for school affairs, and Murielle Legoff, delegate for communication and cultural affairs, greeted the participants, in the presence of the principal, Fabrice Ponchaut and the plastic arts teacher, Sandra Heran.

“We are proud to see the interest you show in the community’s activities by having participated in this competition. We are satisfied with your involvement with your plastic arts teacher, Sandra Heran”underlined the first magistrate before giving everyone their prize.

The winner, Cloé, received a €100 voucher and the privilege of seeing her poster displayed in all merchants and on urban advertising billboards.

The second prize goes to Célian who wins a €75 voucher, the third to Mounia (€50 voucher). All participants in the competition received a cinema ticket and those selected were entitled to two tickets. The posters, selected by the jury, are exhibited in the media library. These creations, symbols of the town’s emblematic floral event, were created with talent by 3rd grade students from Voltaire College, under the direction of Sandra Heran, plastic arts teacher. This initiative illustrates the dynamic collaboration between the municipality, the educational world and the local community.

The Floralies are not only a floral event, but also an opportunity for the town’s young artistic talents to express themselves and contribute to the beautification of their city. Perhaps this competition will inspire vocations, and one day, a Voltaire schoolboy will become an artist who will hang his works at the Salon des Artistes du Canton.
