Several young members of the Pedersen-McCormick Boys & Girls Club submitted beautiful mosaic art pieces as part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Midwest Art Contest- "Moments That Matter Most."

All entries will be on display for auction at the October 28 Great Futures Chairman's Dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel. Winners will be announced at the dinner celebration and will be judged by a panel of Boys & Girls Clubs of America Trustees & Governors.   

Art programs at BGCC give young people a voice through which to express themselves through a variety of highly engaging and creative forms. Following are some of the explanations that members wrote to accompany their art pieces regarding the moments that have mattered most to them:


Moments That Matter The MostIMG_9004

Shania, age 10


The person swimming is for when I went to Florida and went swimming.

The dad and daughter is me and my dad.

And the heart around us is for love.

The girl cheerleading is me when I went to my competition.

The alligator is the animal that I mainly saw when I was in Florida.

A girl shares her love with her Father. And a girl shares her passion of art.

The heart is Life.

The house and my family is when I first moved in my apartment.

The key is for not being homeless.

The water slide is for when I first went on it.

 The guy swimming is when I first learned to swim.

These matter to me.

Graduation Hat = Me learning

Life Preserver = Safety

Plants = How I grow
