Mt. Hope student designs official Fourth of July button for 2022

Posted

The Bristol Fourth of July Committee recently announced the winners of its annual Button Contest, which includes the official button for the 2022 celebration.

Evan Daniel, a junior at Mt. Hope High School, submitted the winning design, depicting Uncle Sam with a flag. This is not his first winning design, nor the family’s. Evan won the Grades 6-8 category in 2019, while his brother, Luke, submitted the overall winning designs each of the last two years, in both 2020 and 2021. Evan is the son of Cherie and Eric Daniel.

Winner in the Grades 6 to 8 category this year is Marissa Cabral, a seventh-grader at Kickemuit Middle School. Marissa won the K to 5 contest two years ago. She is the daughter of Mary and Keith Cabral.
Winner in the contest for Grades K to 5 is Adele Sweeney, a fifth-grader at Colt Andrews Elementary School. Adele’s twin sister, Eden, was Little Miss Fourth of July last year. Her parents are Tracy Sweeney and Matthew Tucker and Beth and Eric Sweeney.

Each of the artists received a $50 prize, and the overall winner received an additional $75. All three are invited to ride in a float during the Fourth of July parade.
