Chamlian Winners In The "I Love My Neighborhood" Contest!

Every year, over 10,000 students from public and private schools from the Glendale, Montrose, and La Crescenta areas participate in the “I Love my Neighborhood” contest. The purpose of the contest is to educate elementary school-aged children, grades K-6, about subjects such neighborhood pride, graffiti prevention, litter, and pollution prevention. It is organized by Glendale Clean and Beautiful, which addresses community and neighborhood issues with each year’s contest theme addressing a specific topic. The poster contest encourages our students to express the positive feelings they have for their neighborhood by depicting subject matter in their works of art. This year, the “I love my Neighborhood” poster contest theme was “ Say No to Graffiti.” Aleek Krikorian from 1st grade, Natalie Davidian from 3rd grade, and Nanar Shahinian from 6th grade were our finalists’ winners. Out of 10,000 finalists, Nanar Shahinian made it to the top 5th group! Congratulations to our talented students for their hard work, dedication, and creativity. We are very proud of them! A special thank to you Ms. Helen Akbari for her leadership throughout this entire project and for instilling creativity and the love of art in our students 💙🎨🖍🖌
