solar eclipseHOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (10/17/13) – Winners of the second annual solar eclipse poster contest have been selected. The contest was sponsored by the Hopkinsville Solar Eclipse Committee and included fourth and fifth grade students of Caldwell, Christian, Todd and Trigg County elementary schools. The purpose of this area contest was to increase awareness for the total solar eclipse that will be passing through Hopkinsville in 2017.
 
Hopkinsville will be the location of greatest totality, where the duration of the eclipse will be the longest, which is expected to be approximately 2 minutes, 40 seconds. The students’ posters reflected this year’s theme “Lights Out.”
 
Students that were named as the first place winner of their school will receive a Star Pilot by Young Scientist Space Kits courtesy of the Hopkinsville Community College Foundation. Winners’ posters will also be displayed in the lobby of the HCC library with an overall winning entry to be chosen by a judging panel of college faculty and local citizens experienced in art and astronomy. The overall winner, which will be announced on November1, will receive a Notebook 7” Tablet Dual Core with 8 GB of memory provided by Cornerstone Information Systems of Hopkinsville.
