Hope in us

Our submission is about ideas to give you hope while going through a though time. We provided a few tips with tangible actions to take. The idea was to ensure that students have an opportunity to have “toolkit” in case of needing help.

Getting Over the Hurdles in Life

My entry is about what I do to get through hard times in life and what I believe will help you get through those dark times. I also provide examples of what one might have to go through and how to keep on going even though it is hard sometimes. It could give readers hope and can motivate one to keep pushing even when things get rough.

What is Hope?

Our video is meant to show what others think hope is or what they are hoping for. We hope that people will feel encouraged by this to share their hope with the world and not be scared to show their hopes and dreams.

You Have Me :)

My entry is about my friend called Ava who’s been stressing out about her school work and extracurriculars. I want her to know that I will always be by her side and support her no matter what. And I hope through listening to this song, she can feel better and keep going.


This paint reflects what my mind was going through while I was sick.

What Gives Me Hope?

The bubble with words provides what gives that person hope to move forward. No matter how hard life got, those were their inspiration to keep going. The door represents the future and the good it will hold.

Angry monument

I allow myself to display my anger through my art. I remind myself I am more than a mental illness by telling myself I am creative, artistic and inventive. I have been learning how to cope with my mental illness by creating beautiful things through my artwork.


Love is being held by trees, hoping to rise above everything else. Despite the pain there is still a sky.

Hiking for Hope

I made visual art to encourage young people to find hope by being outside in nature. Whenever I feel stressed or in a challenging time, being in nature can help give me hope. Hiking is not only good exercise but also good for your mental health.

Hands of Hope

Our entry is a painting with a quote about hope on it. We wanted to show that people can help others find hope instead of just showing ways of how to find hope. We felt that helping others can also help give yourself hope too.
