The 150th anniversary of the inclusion of the motto “In God We Trust” on the first U.S. coins is April 22. To commemorate the occasion, educational organization Salt & Light Global is sponsoring an art contest open to Michigan high school juniors and seniors.
Art can be created in any medium but must incorporate the motto. A photograph of the finished artwork must be submitted by April 1. Winners will be selected by April 15. Thirteen winners will share $9,500 worth of prizes at a press conference held on the steps of the Michigan Capitol in Lansing on April 22.
