"We're interested in making sure our entire community gets involved with our branding process," said Communications Director Larry McIntyre. "The kids had a lot of great ideas and we're moving forward with the 'Westmont is the Bestmont' Contest."

Drawings & Paintings

“This contest is a great way for Westmont to really express themselves while helping to create a new vision of our community,” said Westmont High School freshman and Youth Ambassador Pranav Viswanath.
