The Award Ceremony was live-cast both by Alithia's Art Angels and El Progreso Memorial Library. The Uvalde Leader News was in attendance and wrote this lovely article.
Choosing winners was difficult, especially as we received 125 last-minute entries! The photo above shows the Alithia's Art Angels team judging entries at the library: Alithia's parents Jess Hernandez and Ryan Ramirez on the right, and site curator Violet Lemay on the left. We want to thank everyone who participated. Alithia's Art Angels is all about you! Thanks for helping us support young artists in the name of Alithia Haven Ramirez.

END GUN VIOLENCE Poster Competition
Announcing Alithia's Art Angels 2nd Annual Summer Art Supplies Giveaway!
Last summer our contest was wide open, but for the summer of 2023 we have narrowed our focus.
All children are artists, and art is a powerful and influential means of communication. Gun Violence is America's #1 killer of children, so we are inviting children to raise their art-voices and create END GUN VIOLENCE posters.
All children from grades K-12 are eligible.
All artwork must be received no later than 1pm Oct 12, 2023.
Winners will be notified by email, and also on our social media.
We will choose 4 winners by age range, and 1 overall winner.
Fun prizes will be awarded, including art supplies!
All entries will be posted here on our website, and also on our social media. (Note that Alithia's Art Angels reserves the right not to publish any content deemed inappropriate by our judges.)
Submit your child's art along with name and grade just completed, one of two ways:
Email a high-quality digital file to our site curator.
Send your poster via snail mail to:
PO Box 2017
Due to the high volume of entrants, we can't promise to return physical entries.
