2018 Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day Art Competition

Art Competition

To celebrate the National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day on May 10, 2018, the City of Fremont Human Services Department, Youth and Family Services Division in partnership with Fremont Unified School District, and with support from Kaiser Permanente hosted an inaugural FUSD Student Art competition with the theme of “Sharing Feelings and Hope.” Seventy submissions were received from FUSD students. With the help of a five–person judging panel made up of City Human Relations commissioners, local parent and community leaders, and a professional artist/designer, five winners, six runners-up, and 21 honorable mentions were selected for recognition and awards.

The work of these students was displayed at an art exhibition and celebration event at the Fremont Family Resource Center on May 10. The event was well-attended by all the winners and runners-up, some of the honorable mentions and their families, as well as community leaders. Mayor Lily Mei and FUSD Board of Education Student Member Zuhair Imaduddin gave out prizes and acknowledged the students. Attendees commented that the event was meaningful and successful in helping to raise their awareness about Children’s Mental Health and they want to see more events like this organized in the future.

All summited artwork will be posted on the Youth and Family Services’ Instagram page, as well as some submissions on the City's Youth and Family Services webpage and on the FRC Facebook page. Original student artwork will also be displayed at the Fremont Family Resource Center, Youth and Family Services Division, and Fremont Unified School District as well as other community locations through the end of the school year.
