  1. Love it! Thank you MCG for promoting positivity and productivity in our collective space!
    Congrats to every one of these young people. Thanks to all the teachers, guides, and mentors.
    Much appreciated!

  2. I am so glad all I had to do was watch and enjoy seeing the work. I would not want to have been a judge. All of the work is very worthy of recognition. Remember in art competitions their are no winners and losers. Every person’s art has it’s own voice. Some work speaks to the judges in a way they want to reward. WELL DONE ALL
