Melinda, age 12, said that she wanted to highlight the different cultures in LA and the diversity of our city through the puzzle pieces. Also, since we live right by the beach, she decided to include the Beach Bike Path, Santa Monica Pier Sign, and Ferris Wheel. 🏖️ 🚴🏿♀️🎡 It’s so great that this Lincoln Middle Schooer participated, and thanks so much for celebrating all things local.
Nico, age 9, said, “They (essential workers) are doing so much for us so we should do everything we can, and we should care about them.” We just loved his point of view: “You Matter, We Care.” 🧑⚕️🛍️🚌 👮🧑🏿🚒
It was the first time winning a contest for Aoife, Age 4. 🌈 We just loved her beautiful use of glitter and rainbows! (Top: Aoife’s drawing; Bottom: Finn, Aoife’s sibling)
