“This contest will be an excellent outlet to showcase the talent that is engrained in Bronx youth. As our borough continues to grow and change, giving our youth opportunities to show their stuff not only gives us a platform for them to be celebrated and encouraged to progress, it also allows us a sneak peek into what we can look forward to for our future,” said contest judge, Uriah Johnson, Deputy Director of Westchester Square Business Improvement District. “I really love the organization’s mission to introduce more arts programming to Bronx-based children and families.”
