2019 Art & Creative Writing Contest

In recognition of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, The Kim Foundation sponsored an Art & Creative Writing Contest for students in grades 6 – 12 around the Metro area. We invited students to submit original works of art or creative writing that focused on the theme, “Hope and Healing through Creativity.” We wish to thank all of the students who entered their talented work into this year’s contest. We appreciate the support of the schools for the contest as well. The winners in each category are listed below. Due to the amount of writings that were submitted, we awarded prizes at both the middle school and high school levels. We congratulate all the students on the creative and powerful messages they portrayed through their art and writings!

We hope that through the art and creative writing contest, students were able to share their personal stories to aid in their healing and recovery. We plan to sponsor the contest again next year, so watch for information in future newsletters!
