Upriver Youth Leadership Council (UYLC) asked aspiring artists in Kamiah and Kooskia to submit original work that expressed themselves through art on their feelings of #safeathome and they delivered in a big way! The judges were floored by the talent, thoughtfulness and technical ability of this year’s student artists.
The judges of this year’s contest were Jody Dow, Mona Farmer, Toby Robin, Candance Short and Shanna Clark. Each entry was judged on the artwork itself as well as the narrative submitted. The participants did an amazing job of creatively describing their feelings of #safeathome through art and narrative.
UYLC is thrilled to announce the winners:
1st Place: Luella Smith ($100)
2nd Place: Whitney Andrews ($50)
3rd Place: MaKinna Wilson ($25)
Honorable Mention: Yessica Gonzales and Brentiyah Broncheau (Silverwood ticket)
Artwork will be on display in the front window at 413 Main Street, Kamiah and are on display on the UYLC website upriveryouth.org.
This is the Second Annual UYLC Art Contest, and UYLC hopes that next year’s theme will be a little more fun!
