Middle School Division (Grades 6-8)

Keilani Kooper
Title: Finding My Voice
Grade: 8
Huntington Middle School
“Mental health has been declining at an alarming rate, affecting about one in ten people worldwide.This piece represents my struggle dealing with my axiety and expressing myself. In the center, the faint image depicts my “composed” face as I stare directly into the camera, suppressing my emotions and worrying about how others view me. As you look further to the sides, it becomes clearer to see my emotions; I can express feelings more easily, turning away from the camera and focusing on myself rather than the viewer. I begin to express myself and show my voice.”

High School Division (Grades 9-12)

Drake Nguyen
Title: Droplets
Grade: 11
Adolfo Camarillo High School
“This piece illuminates the significance of my voice. Like a rock, silence can be dark, still, and brittle. Crushing criticism, oppressive opinions, and passionate perspectives can often erode the morale of those who remain mute. Expressing my thoughts doesn’t just improve my self-confidence; it also allows others to listen and relate to my insight. I know that contributing my droplet to humanity’s wave enriches the wisdom of the world around us. Every voice helps to unlock a level of knowledge, awareness, and empathy that can shine above the harshest obstacles.”
