9th annual Teen Winter Challenge Results

On June 8, we wrapped up our 9th annual Teen Winter Challenge art competition with a winner's gala, complete with tapas and sparkling cider "champagne." Almost 200 teens submitted portfolios, making this year's competition our largest to date! A print catalog containing at least one piece from every teen's portfolio was entered into our collection.
Check out the digital version of this catalog below:
