Contest Winners: Your Creative Touch


The touch of each finger leaves an imprint unique to each person. Just as fingerprints are capable of marking an individual, the contest entries also revealed unique abilities by many talented young people.

With refreshing individuality, these winners were able to use their feelings of beauty and insight to create works of art that did indeed touch us. Their creative touch produced photos, poems, songs, hymns, artwork, stories, and articles that are both skillfully done and enjoyable.

We are pleased to present the place winners and honorable mentions of the 1994 New Era Writing, Art, Photography, and Music Contest.
