A big honor for a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County’s Middlebury Clubhouse.
Art work created by 10-year-old Harper has won a first place award from the Michael Phelps Foundation. The Clubhouse has been taking part in the “IM Program” offered through a grant from the foundation. It’s designed to teach children and young adults important life skills including water safety, physical and mental fitness, nutrition and goal setting.
This summer, kids were encouraged to learn about water safety, healthy living (emotional and physical), and the pursuit of dreams. Kids were encouraged to use any combination of paint, pencil, ink or collage photography to help spread the message. Harper’s entry was selected as best in the 10 and under age group.
The art was judged by the foundation team based on originality, artistry and adherence to the theme. For winning the contest, Harper will receive a $500 Under Armour shopping spree and the Middlebury Clubhouse will get a $5,000 donation from the Michael Phelps Foundation.
