2017 T-Shirt Artist Sydney Haddad

 

This year’s Art Contest winner is 12-year-old Sydney Haddad of Concord, MA. Sydney came to the walk for the first time last year with the youth group from First Parish Church in Concord, where she also sings in her church’s Gospel choir and participates in a mother-daughter book group. In her after-school hours, Sydney loves to play the guitar and run for Sanborn School’s cross-country team. This past summer Sydney went to Nashoba Day Camp and learned a lot about boating and sailing, which she loves now. She also went with her parents and younger brother to NYC where they saw “Hamilton.”

Sydney’s winning design for the 2017 CROP Walk T-shirt features two colorful images. One shows a big orange carrot and the words “Keep calm and carrot on.” The other is a drawing of a big red beet with the words “Beet hunger” below. Sydney says she was carrying a sign to the walk that said “Keep calm and carrot on”, and she thought it would make a good design for the T-shirt. And indeed it did!

Sydney and her parents and little brother will be at the walk this year. You can meet this talented young artist at the T-shirt table before the walk.
