Chalk HeART Challenge Awards

Art can educate, inspire, and mobilize young people
to create communities
where everyone is valued, safe, and able to thrive;
where we choose all of us.

Idaho middle/junior high and high school artists illustrated published works from the 2019 We Choose All of Us Stories of Transformation collection booklets written by Idaho students at the 8th Annual LIVE Chalk HeART Challenge on May 15th at the Linen Building.

23 teams consisting of nearly 100 middle-school and high-school students participated in the LIVE, timed challenge to illustrate their selected poem from the 2019 Stories of Transformation poetry book or the poem We Choose All of Us. Artists/Teams were selected for Chalk HeART Awards and received up to a $100 cash prize.
