Contest Winners: Grand Designers

Print Share

    It begins as an idea or a concept. When the idea begins to take shape, the writer, the artist, the songwriter, and the photographer have a vision of what their idea can become as they scale the heights of their imaginations. Each year our readers share their creative talents with us, and each year the quality of the entries is amazing. What began as an idea in the mind is now something we can all enjoy, and these are the people responsible for this creativity. We are pleased to present the winners of the 1993 New Era Writing, Art, Photography, and Music Contest.
