    Ten proposals with almost $4,000 in requests were submitted for the $1,000 Empty Bowls Art Grant last November. The annual grant, funded with some proceeds from the Leavenworth Empty Bowls Festival, helps support art education in the community.
    We are pleased to announce this year's recipients:
The Alpine Lakes Elementary third grade team, Katie Gomez, Jenelle Allen, Blaney Oyos-Hernandez and Angie Hill will use their grant to purchase art materials and reusable equipemt to integrate art education and the Social Studies unit on Native Americans.

Lindsey Kellett will work with her team from Peshastin-Dryden and Alpine Lakes Elementary schools to host an Art and Music Family Night on March 5. Their grant will be used to purchase art materials for the community event.

Cordi Bradburn and Amber Zimmerman work for the Cascade School District through the LEAAP Program to teach art and art appreciation once a month. Their grant will support purchasing visual aids to help meet the needs of targeted art lessons for more students.

Lindsay Camp with Upper Valley Preschool will use her grant to help purchase art materials for their S.T.E.A.M night.

Morgan Fraser with Leavenworth Spanish will use her grant toward purchasing supplies to incorporate art into her language classes for kids ages 5 through teens.

We recognize and appreciate the great programs being offered in our community to help to inspire young artists.
