We should be very proud of our student winners.  They did an outstanding job of integrating the theme for this year which was “Put Faith in Action!  Uproot Poverty Together”.  Thank you to all of our student entrants.  It is wonderful that you are using your artistic gifts from God to bring attention to a such a pervasive social problem.
