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.
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.
