Quapaw, OK (April 12, 2021) - In a partnership with Quapaw Public School's art teacher, Phillis Cruzan, The Quapaw courts held an art contest that closed in mid January. The contest was held in the name of Juvenile Healing to Wellness and it allowed youths to showcase their art skills with the overall goal being to design a logo for the new Juvenile Healing to Wellness Court.
Students were asked to design a logo that would incorporate the Quapaw Nation colors, court emphasis, cultural emphasis, and Healing to Wellness. At stake were several visa gift cards with the top prize being $100.00.
"We would like to take this time to thank all 46 participants that entered into the Juvenile Healing to Wellness Courts Art Contest. Your hard work is greatly appreciated by our office and the Quapaw Nation." - Sara Chandler
