To celebrate Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day on May 7th, and the art, creativity, and resiliency of Fremont students, the City of Fremont Human Services Department, Youth and Family Services Division in partnership with Fremont Unified School District, hosted the third annual Children Mental Health Awareness Virtual Art Contest, "Sharing Feelings and Hope"
Students had the opportunity to work on their art submissions during the school closure and Shelter- in-Place order and were encouraged to help us promote Mental Health Awareness illustrated through drawing, painting, collage, photography, sculpture, creative writing, or short film.
To display the more than 270 submissions received, a virtual art exhibition has been launched! Virtual Art Exhibition
Mayor Lily Mei created a video to recognize the event and announce the winners finalists, who were selected by a judging panel made up of a Fremont Unified School District (FUSD) Board Trustee, FUSD Student Support Services staff, a high school educator and high school students, local social service agency representatives, fine and graphic artists, and City of Fremont employees.
