Thank you to all of the charter school students who participated in the 2017 Midwest Charter Schools Art Contest! Over 1,000 students from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin shared drawings of where they would go and how they would get there if they could go “Up, Up, and Away!” Our panel of judges were inspired by so many great hopes, dreams, and ambitions. Now, we’re proud to announce the winners.
