Thank You to Our Judges

This was an extremely competitive year with so many amazing entries. An independent panel of judges took into consideration the creativity of the design, the quality of the artwork, and the message portrayed in the drawing, among other factors. They had a tough job, and we'd like to say thank you for their time and consideration. This year's panel included:

Ruth Bedeian – Retired art teacher

Garth Graeper – KidsVoice, an organization that advocates for children in the child-welfare system

Myrna Rosen – Adjunct professor in Carnegie Mellon's School of Design, internationally-recognized Calligraphy Artist, and grandmother of five

Thank you to everyone who participated in our contest and congratulations again to our winners. We wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
