This year’s contest was open to kids in grades K-12, and the contest’s theme was Celebrate Youth! Contestants were permitted to enter up to three submissions, which could be either art or poetry or both. One lucky girl from the Grayson program took home the grand prize in the 8-12 grade category and won a guest spot working with Art Director Angela Bayless on a custom tee shirt design to be revealed later this year.
