Many thanks to Lisa Armstrong of Ajuga, Inc., for sponsoring the contest. She writes, “For me the benefit was two-fold: Not only were we able to spotlight and encourage these incredibly talented youth but the contest also served to bring awareness of the Mountain Arts District and its purpose to people in and around our region. That purpose being to promote the artists of all genres in this region and promote our area as an arts destination.” Armstrong continued, “I’m hoping we can do this again next year and encourage more businesses and organizations to help sponsor this contest and support the Mountain Arts District.”
