Ánimo Watts Writers and Artists Honored in the Ánimo Voices Competition

Green Dot's Ánimo Voices Writing and Art Competition invited students from across the Green Dot network to produce written and art pieces depicting innovators, upstanders, visionaries, or rebels that have made a difference in their local or broader communities.

The competition was an opportunity to motivate, recognize, and celebrate our strong student voices and writing skills with exciting prizes, publication, and scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of Green Dot Ambassadors, students were able to win a number of great prizes, including a college scholarship.
