So many students participated in the call for artists for the Fort Collins 2024 Pedestrian Paver Project. I know lots of students have been anxiously awaiting the results! It was a great opportunity to inquire and share what makes Fort Collins and how we get around the city so unique and special to each individual. As I shared, this project only accepts 15 children's artwork each year over hundreds, if not thousands of entries. This year, I am excited to announce that the following students’ designs were selected for this project:

Hank F.- 2nd

Zahraa M.- 3rd

This is an amazing accomplishment! Please share your congratulations with them. Also, to all those who participated, thank you for being a risk-taker and putting yourself out there. I am proud of all of you!

Students whose drawings have been accepted will have their designs digitally scanned, enlarged, and sandblasted into a 16" granite stone paver. Their name will also be featured on the granite paver along with the drawing. The completed pavers will be placed in Fort Collins sidewalks. Keep an eye out!
