A Time To Heal Racism : Art Contest Winner

Our daughter won the Catholic Campaign for Human Development  art contest dubbed as "A Time to Heal Racism".  As a grand prize winner, she received  an all-paid ($325.00) one-week Summer Camp in Camp Bosco.  It's a great  learning opportunity but we couldn't send her alone to participate  in the said summer camp.  She was scared to attend alone.  It's one of those  fears she has, being  far from us and not knowing the people she is going to interact with.  We were also worried about it so we didn't force her to attend.  
Anyway, her original  work was sent to Washington D.C. for the national contest.  it will be displayed for  educational purposes so it won't be sent back.  I am glad they sent us a photocopy of it. 
Aside from the art, they were also asked to write an essay for this contest.  I will update this with her original content. to explain her entry further.  To some it might just look like different shapes of cut out  art paper but there's a reasoning behind it.  The different colors represents the skin colors of different races  working together towards unity and peace.  I think if we put some compassion into our hearts, the world would be a much better place to live.

  3. It is absoultely wondeful to see kids get involved in the arts. They are too many times that the arts get cheated and it is not fair. I love to see creativity.

  13. I love her art project! I hope that someone else got the camp scholarship since she wasn't interested in going. I don't think my kids would choose to go either in the same circumstances.
