Wow! What challenges did these students face and continue to face as Covid is lingering? Our perspective shifted a bit these past two years. In the past, we required that the student prove that they are attending college. With Covid in the classrooms, we took a more human approach. Our 2020 and 2021 winners were given their award with pride and with hope that it helps them continue to be passionate about their art and life. We have been blessed to have heard from a few of them and it warms my heart whenever we receive a thank you letter. To our winners past and present, you inspire me, us, so greatly. We SEE you. Don’t ever stop believing in yourself. The world is waiting for you.
