The results are in for the Earth Day Youth Art Contest! Thank you so much to everyone who entered the contest and thank you to the local artists and art lovers who volunteered to judge. Each submission was well done, creative, and moving, and the judges had a tough time choosing winners. After much consideration, they chose the winners based both on the art and the description in response to the prompt.

All of the artists listed below are invited to display their submission at an art showing at C5 Studios in Bishop on Wednesday, June 29, from 6 pm – 7 pm. This free showing is open to all members of the community to come and admire these creative pieces submitted by young artists from Inyo and Mono Counties. Light refreshments will be provided. Although not required, an RSVP is appreciated. If you plan to attend this showing, you can email .
