2012-2013 CONTEST INFORMATION

Theme: "The Human Footprint on the Environment: Impacts & Solutions"

The South Carolina Dialogue Foundation hosted their Third Annual Art and Essay Awards Ceremony on Saturday, April 13th at the USC Law Auditorium. Over 200 Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Siblings and other Family Members came out to support their child and their accomplishments. Over 40 awards were given ranging from gift cards to IPads to Turkey Trips.

The 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 Turkey this summer, as well as the first place teachers. The audience was also able to hear from past Turkey trip participants and watch a short video on Turkey. The Principals and Teachers of the First place winners gave short speeches and awarded their students with their prizes. 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 Turkey Trip participants so they will know what to expect on their trip.

South Carolina Dialogue Foundation 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.
