2019 Young Artists Showcase Winners
Each year, the Young Artists Showcase encourages youth from around the globe to express the mission of Sister Cities International through original artwork and literature. This year's theme, Global Citizens, Resilient Communities, celebrates Sister Cities International's mission.

The Young Artists Showcase gives us an opportunity to reach out to the community. It enables us to engage local Art and English teachers, and reach an audience of public, private and home-schooled students that may not already be included in our sister city youth programs.

The 2019 first place prize winner of the local Sister Cities of Hampton Artists Showcase, Hannah Painter received a $200 prize and was entered in the Sister Cities International Showcase to compete for the $1,000 Grand Prize. Painter's artwork speaks to the kidnapping, violence and poverty that that women around the world face.

This year we expanded our local contest to award a second place winner as well. Catherine Brignoni was the talented recipient. Her artwork featured Mahatma Ghandi as a recognized symbol of resilience.  Both students attend Bethel High School in Hampton, Virginia.

Congrats local winners!
