150th Anniversary Poster Contest

About the Contest

Missouri S&T is celebrating its 150-year anniversary beginning in October 2020 and continuing through Fall 2021.

Located in Rolla, Mo., the campus has strong ties to the surrounding community since its founding in 1870. In fact, when classes began in November 1871, the university and the local high school both taught inside the Rolla Building, which is still used today by Missouri S&T.
