6th ANNUAL CLIMATE CRISIS ART EXHIBIT RECEPTION
The Reception was held Friday, April 21, 5-7pm, at Art Center Waco. Guests enjoyed reviewing the 109 artworks, arranged by age division, and voting for the Peoples' Choice Award. According to ACW personnel, a minimum of 110 guests were present.
A delicious array of refreshments was provided for guests, including crackers, fruit, cheese, dips, and wine, with a charcuterie board. It was later announced that the snacks were entirely VEGAN, emphasizing that the diet most helpful to the climate is also delicious. Many thanks to Candy Northcutt for organizing the refreshment service.
Alan Northcutt began the program with a short PowerPoint presentation, focused on solutions to climate breakdown.
Free educational materials were available: FOC business cards with contact information and 15 climate crisis solutions; "Climate Crisis is Here" yard signs with stakes.
The judged awards were presented, about 30 total, with the Peoples' Choice Award. The adult 1st place award to Judi Simon was $1000.

The evening was highly enjoyable, as well as educational and inspirational.
