May - June artist information:
The Art & Poetry Challenge–the living, breathing proof of the power of the arts—is an annual contest hosted by the Racial Unity Team. In 2021, $3,000 in prize money was awarded to winners in elementary school, middle school, high school, and adult categories. New Hampshire residents were invited to submit an original poem or visual work of art inspired by a line they chose from Amanda Gorman's Inauguration Poem, "The Hill We Climb." The challenge was designed to capture a new understanding of the meaning of racial diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice – racial empathy. Teachers and parents were encouraged to share the information with their students and children and invite them to enter the contest. The age range of those submitting entries is 6 to 86. The winning artwork and poetry are on display.
