Congratulations to the talented winners of the 2014 Week of the Young Child Poster Contest! We had some very tough competition with more than 200 entries by children ages birth to 5 from across Durham County. The five winning artists each received 15 new children’s books, and their artwork will be showcased in the Herald-Sun and at Northgate Mall.
