I am delighted to announce the winner of the design contest, Amelia Kauzlarich !  She is a student at Blue Heron School, Port Townsend. Thank you so much for participating in this life changing program.

Her design is a heartfelt inspiration to those she loves. Her wish is to make a difference too! I know her design will definitely do that and more. 

Please read the inspirational story  about our winner, by Jeannie McMacken, The Peninsula Daily News, where she gets to the heart of Amelia's inspiration. See the January 11th, 2019 Jefferson edition for the story; and also, Chris McDaniel's  intimate interview with Amelia in the January 23, 2019 edition of The Leader. The links are posted on the "news" page of this site.

I would like to thank all of the 48 students that submitted design art for the contest. Over the two days of public viewing and voting, I heard many wonderful comments about the level of talent and awareness they displayed.

Our winner will be honored at our first annual fundraiser, June 15, 2019, and will receive a $200. cash award. 

The winning design will be formatted and / or enhanced to meet transportation department guidelines. 

Sign up for the new license plate to fund the program. Every year, the state will give $28. per plate issued for this cause, and 100% will be used for the scholarship program. Together we can make a positive difference for our children.

We need 3500 applicants, and the funds for the application fee, $6,300. With your help, this is possible. Together we can make a difference.

 Join the movement to end type 2 diabetes.
