Copper Dog 150 featured artist is announced

The Copper Dog 150 featured artist in 2024 is Washington Middle School student Jaylynne Poshak, for her piece “Happy Trails.” Poshak’s design adorns the happiness and joy spectators will see on the faces of sled dogs throughout the race. She used soft pastels and pastel pencils to create the artwork. As the 2024 featured artist, Poshak’s art will be featured throughout the weekend on official badges, posters, and merchandise. And she will also be present at the launch in Calumet to help countdown the race. Officials also thank all of the 4,000–plus individuals for voting in the featured artist program. The race also thanks the four youths for their participation in the program, adding that officials are working to develop ways of using the other artists’ works during the festivities.
