On Monday, April 27, the Catholic Schools Office was notified by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development that two seventh grade students from Holy Trinity School in Laconia had won the Grand Prize in the national Multimedia Youth Contest. Tristan MacDonald and R. J. Bolduc’s entry in the competition was a painting entitled “CCHD—Community Garden.” In the NH competition in January, which was juried by three professional artists, Tristan and R.J. won first prize in the grades 7-9 competition, which included a $2,000 gift to their school’s financial aid fund. Their entry was then sent to the CCHD for the national competition and was judged against all of the entries in grades 7-12. In its letter of notification, the CCHD said that Tristan and R.J.’s reflective essay on poverty in their area and how it is being addressed weighed significantly in the decision. In winning the national competition, Tristan and R.J. will share a $500 prize, be given another $500 to donate to a local charity, and earn a $500 award for Holy Trinity School. Tristan and R.J. will be recognized in person for their achievement at the 2015 National Catholic Youth Conference in November in Indianapolis.
Congratulations to Tristan and R.J.!
