Devan and Gavin St. Thomas

Pelham Together recently hosted a Hope Contest for our middle school and high school students.  Students were asked to creatively respond to the question, “What brings you hope.” And boy did they! It was incredibly powerful to witness the inspiring entries of how so many young people are finding hope. Entries included poems, paintings, videos, essays, drawings, and more, even a graphic novel!  Our judges were so impressed, and overwhelmed with hope; we’re sure you will agree.  See photos here of our winners and their entries.
