Zakaa Wins the Philadelphia 76ers Mentoring Art Project Contest
Fresh Smiles helps Zakaa continue his piano lessons, but playing piano is not his only talent. He is a writer and an artist. Zakaa submitted his art to the Piliadephia 76ers Mentoring Art Project Contest and he won! The Mentoring Art Project is a Philadelphia competition to encourage youth to express their ideas about mentorship through visual and literary storytelling. The contest takes place in January to celebrate National Mentoring Month.
Zakaa’s art will be one of 20 pieces that will be showcased at a traveling art show. The exhibit will be at City Hall, The National Mentorship Summit in Washington DC, the Sixers Home Arena, and then permanently at Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Congratulations Zakaa! All of us at Fresh Smiles Foundation are so proud of you.
