Phoenix Gordon and Kaitlyn Sullivan, both Class of 2022, received honorable mention designations in Belonging: A Community Art Project, a local poster design contest sponsored by The Sprout Fund, Pittsburgh's leading agency supporting innovative ideas, catalyzing community change, and making the region a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family. Sprout invited residents of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County to submit original artwork that expressed "belonging."
Of the nearly 250 contest entrants, nineteen WT Middle School students submitted designs, five were finalists, and Phoenix and Kaitlyn were named honorable mention winners. Their designs will be included on a "Community Voices" poster, which will be distributed throughout Pittsburgh. In addition, Phoenix and Kaitlyn will receive $100 honorariums for their work.
Congratulations, Phoenix and Kaitlyn!
