The New Hampshire State House Bicentennial Commission, on behalf of the state of New Hampshire, was pleased to offer the 2017 NH State House Bicentennial Poster Contest to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the New Hampshire State House. The contest was open to any child between the ages 5-21 who resided in New Hampshire and was a public, private or home school student in kindergarten through grade 12. The theme was The New Hampshire State House and its Meaning Today. Regional leaders chose nine winners for each region (one first, second and third place winner for each age group) who then moved on for statewide consideration. A state panel consisting of members of each branch of government chose one first, second and third place winner, by age group. A total of 9 awards were given.
