2016-2017 CONTEST INFORMATION

Theme: Compassion in Action: Caring Matters.

The Atlantic Institute hosted their Seventh Annual Art and Essay Awards Ceremony on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at the USC Booker T. Washington Auditorium. Over 200 Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Siblings and other Family Members came out to support their child and their accomplishments. Over 60 awards were given ranging from gift cards to Peru Trips.

The first place winners got to share either their motivation behind their artwork or read their essays out loud to the entire audience. The top three student winners in each category all won a trip to Peru next spring, as well as the first place teachers. A reception followed immediately where all of the Essays and Artwork were showcased for everyone to see. A short meeting afterward was held for all the Peru Trip participants so they will know what to expect on their trip.

The Atlantic Institute would once again like to congratulate all of the Art and Essay Winners! All of you did outstanding work. It was a joy to see everyone come together to celebrate your creative talents.
