WWI Propaganda Poster ResultsStudent winners with their teammates posed with their winning posters. Mark D’Angelo who won a teacher prize for his poster raising money through war bonds said, he was looking for a “slogan-y and catchy theme.” He wanted to use red, white and blue and get the idea across “that even a small amount could save lives.” Kevin (Yuechen) Xiao, who received the second highest number of votes for his work wanted to get across the idea “that Germany wanted to conquer the world.” His creative design showed a German solider devouring the world. Art Moy said in his research of propaganda posters “the flag played a major role” and he wanted to incorporate that into his project. He used the American Flag as the entire backdrop of his poster encouraging support of the war effort through war bonds. Vanessa Huang was the overall vote getter, her art work depicted a pack of hyenas stomping on the American flag, and her words “Keep the Hun out before it’s too late,” shows the anti-German feelings of the era. Carly Johnson another winner from the students voting, used romance as her theme, “She’d love you more if you enlist.” One of the teacher selected winners was a straight forward poster by Lauren Beers, “Join the Army for Home & Country.” The reward for winning: a bag of Kit Kats for your team.
