Contestants were challenged to create a poster that depicted what they thought the conference theme quote from Johnnie Carr means in our society today:
"I want all the young people to look around and see the things you are now able to enjoy. I beg you, I admonish you, to look and to see what has happened in the past, and move forward and see what you can do for the future."
