Isha participated in the Dublin Partners in Education Student Art Calendar for 2018-2019 and won her placement in the calendar in the month of October.
The theme for this year's contest was "What Makes You Smile?" Isha also had a comment attached to her entry which is also printed on the calendar stating that: My family makes me smile. Their love for me is bigger that the Nile River. I smile when I eat a treat. Treats like ice cream from the truck down the street. Dublin also makes me smile. I have a home here, of course I'd smile! I have many more things to smile about, there are just a few I thought about. 🙂
Winners had their artwork printed in a calendar and distributed in mass. All calendar sold will directly benefit student programs funded by Dublin Partners in Education (DPIE).
DPIE had 156 beautiful entries from 10 of the 11 school sites. Two winners were selected from Amador Elementary School, as they had the most submittals. The very difficult task of judging the artworks was left to a distinguished panel of judges, which included a member from the DUSD School Board; employees from our partners, Fremont Bank, Amador Valley Industries, El Monte RV; members from the Dublin Chamber of Commerce; and artists from the community. The judges viewed all 156 pieces to determine the winners.
