The Holiday Art & Essay Contest at this year's Merry Memories was one of the happiest highlights for children and teens who attended our annual event!
Children were asked to reflect on their favorite Christmas traditions through art and/or words. Their work simply took our breath away! Such beautiful illustrations showed what the holidays mean to them and their essays were filled with heartfelt stories of special people who have made a lasting impact on their lives.
It was amazing to see how much love can be packed into one page!
