2019 Kentucky Derby Poster Contest


High school students throughout the Commonwealth are invited to submit their own rendition of what they think Derby day looks like in a contest to design a Derby poster the governor and first lady will display in the Capitol.

The three finalists will be invited to attend a luncheon at the Governor’s Mansion, where the winner will be revealed. The first place winner will be given the opportunity to attend the Kentucky Derby Festival Luncheon and the Derby Eve Gala as a guest of the governor and first lady. The first place winner also will receive a $500 scholarship; the second place winner will receive a $300 scholarship and the third place a $200 scholarship from the #WeAreKY, Inc. Foundation.

Artwork should be submitted online by Feb. 28 on the first lady’s website. Finalists will be required to submit original artwork for review.
