Illustrating Headlines

Kindergarten & Grade 1

For the 2019 Celebration 225 contest, students should collect newspaper photographs with headlines that relate to Lancaster County history, culture or people — pieces that are of special interest to young children (such as feature and news stories and some editorials).

Ask the students to examine the headline, and in some cases the subhead, and to look for the 5 W’s of Who, What, Where, When, and Why. Identify the action verbs, strong nouns and adjectives in the headlines.

Teachers and/or students should pick headlines from LNP or LancasterOnline to illustrate.

Illustrations can be in COLOR!  Please follow these guidelines for submission:

  • MARKERS are the preferred method for color.
  • MAKE IT VIBRANT! Darker colors are preferred for print.  Light colors may not reproduce well.
  • OUTLINE YOUR ARTWORK using a felt tip or ball point pen to help it pop!

Student Entry Form – Teacher should download and print one form per student entry.

Teacher Summary Sheet – Print one copy, complete summary of student entries, and submit with entries.
