Fresno County Youth Place in November Hope & Justice Contest
November’s Hope & Justice contest asked youth to reflect on someone who has inspired them, supported them, or used their influence for good. Participants selected a “Mental Health Hero” as their focus, using their chosen artform to highlight someone who helps others see the possibilities within themselves, inspiring them to overcome and do great things with their lives. Congratulations to the youth from Fresno County who placed in the contest!
- Honorable Mention – Art: “The Guide of Life” by Damian Martinez, John Sutter Middle School
