Congratulations to the ten young artists from Pimlico Elementary / Middle School, a neighborhood conversion charter public school with Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP), for their poster designs for the 2024 Poster Art Contest, sponsored by the Baltimore Chapter of the Links.

The Links, Incorporated, an international nonprofit with chapters across the U.S. and globe, was created in 1946 by women of African descent to enrich and sustain the rich history of African Americans and other persons of African descent. One of the U.S.’s oldest and largest volunteer service organizations, The Links, Incorporated sponsors a National Poster Art Contest focused on a health-related theme.

Each Links chapter conducts its own competition to determine a regional winner who then competes in the national contest. The national winner will be announced in June 2024 at The Links National Assembly in Dallas, Texas.

This year, the Baltimore (MD) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated hosted its first poster competition since the COVID-19 pandemic. Inspired by the 2024 theme “Transforming Communities by Making Health a Habit,” ten Pimlico artists created exciting poster designs. 

On May 5, 2024, at Port Discovery in Baltimore, the artists, their families, PEMS faculty and staff, and members of the Baltimore (MD) Chapter enjoyed an afternoon celebrating their creativity and announcing the winners of the chapter’s contest.

Each of the ten Pimlico artists received certificates, with the top three winners receiving cash prizes:

Hero for Wellness by Isaiah C., 4th grade – First Place

A Good Clean World by Katalaya N., 4th grade – Second Place

Good Environment and Bad Environment by Aissata G., 3rd grade – 3rd Place

Health of Castles by Ma’Laysha R., 4th grade

Do The Good Not The Bad by Hadija L., 3rd grade 

Hand in Nature by Dorrian H., 4th grade

Healthy Growth, Healthy Me by Ma’Ciya H., 5th grade

Land of Hawaii by Aziyah F., 4th grade

Sunny Neighborhood by Stephon H., 4th grade

Good Health for School by Deondre C., 4th grade 

The poster competition has been a great way to connect with the students at Pimlico Elementary Middle School. Through this community service project, our chapter can inspire, encourage, and empower Baltimore City Public School students to utilize art to express themselves. We’ve been working in the Baltimore community for over 70 years and continue to strive to build partnerships and encourage those in the community of Baltimore.

This year, members of the Baltimore (MD) Chapter assisted with a Black History Month Competition, Science Fair, and provided hats and gloves to the students during the winter season.

Thank you, Baltimore (MD) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated, for your ongoing support of our students and for creating exciting opportunities for them to share their voice and talents with the community.
