Contest Winners: Show Your Gratitude 2020!
Youth Winner: Eryn Raphael, Valparaiso
"Rainbow Fruit Bowl"
"This drawing shows my gratitude for all the color in the world. It also represents my obsession with grapes. There are so many grapes in the bowl that they are falling on the table. I wanted to use color to highlight happiness and health and the fruit is what keeps us strong! I also used a lot of shapes in my design because I wanted to show that different shapes, ideas and colors could go together."
Teen Winner: Simon Nirenberg, Munster
