HELENA – Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen announced Charlie Heitzman, of Lewistown, the winner of the inaugural Law Enforcement Appreciation Poster Contest. Heitzman is a third-grade student at Highland Park Elementary School.

The winning poster shows Charlie with his uncle, Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Calvin Jimmerson, and his patrol car. Charlie said he is proud of his uncle “because he keeps highways safe.”

Attorney General Knudsen and MHP Colonel Steve Lavin will celebrate with Charlie and his class later this month and the winning poster will be displayed in MHP offices and made available to law enforcement offices across the state. In addition to the statewide winner, seven regional winners were chosen who will receive an ice cream social delivered by local troopers. The winners were from all eight MHP districts.
