California Scenic Highway 27 Poster Contest Winners

Thanks to school moms, Lisa Ward and Topanga Animal Rescue’s Susan Clark, Topanga Elementary Charter School students helped celebrate the dedication of Topanga Canyon Boulevard as a California Scenic Highway by submitting original art work around the theme, “TCB—Forever Scenic.” They were also encouraged to “Be Bold. Be Beautiful. Like Topanga!”

Winners were notified by e-mail and announced on three websites: the Topanga Town Council, the Chamber of Commerce and TASC. Susan Clark also announced the winners as part of the dedication ceremony at Theatricum where she presented their prizes of $100 for first place and $50 each for second and third place.

Every Topangan who participated in any capacity towards the success of this effort should be busting their buttons with pride. Whether the kids won a prize or not, we are so proud of all of you and you should be proud of yourselves.

Thank you for your contributions.
