Creating Change through the Arts 2019
We had a great evening last Wednesday night at the Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) Board meeting! We had the opportunity to present our winners of our "Creating Change through the Arts" contest that was held this past school year. The contest was an opportunity for students to communicate to their peers a message about what is important to them, about bringing each other together and fostering an inclusive environment in their schools. This contest builds on the OCF's grant programs and our anti-bullying efforts within the AACPS.
Our winners won a cash award from the OCF, and then we matched that award as well with donation to a charity of their choice. Their artwork is being reproduced and distributed to the schools for display.
Our winners are:
Nicholas Cregar - Jones Elementary School - "Take a Stand, Lend a Hand." Keith Ivey - Shipley's Choice Elementary School - "Be a Friend." Margott Stott - Severn River Middle School - "All it Takes is One Word." James Uy - Severna Park Middle School - "Choose to be Kind."
