Youth Taking Root was part of this year’s Supercrawl, and despite the weather, we had a very successful turnout! We would like to thank all the artists that submitted their pieces as well as the hundreds of people who voted!
Here are the winners of the 2015 Supercrawl Student Art Showcase:
First Place: Jessica Jennings, “The Human In Us”
Tied for second place: Ava Corey, “Tree” (left” and Haleemah Allaw, “World of Colour” (right)
Best Environmental Message: Leroy Dobler, “Dirt on Our Hands”
As well as the art showcase, we had 2 recycled dresses on display created by YTR members Minha and Arooba Amir. Our first dress was made from newspaper and the other was made of playing cards. We had lots of people try on the dresses as well!
Even though our summer launch is over, we still have several events planned for this fall, including an edible mushroom growing workshop and a kafir workshop, so stay tuned!
