Despite social distancing, a most-successful annual Art Contest concluded April 22 with the awarding of
28 recognitions totaling $1,830 in prizes for student art performance in 9 art categories. Some 105
entries were judged. Students from Carver, St. Felicitas and Perpetua, Southwestern, Huntington Middle
School and San Marino High participated.
Judges were looking for a high level of artistic communication and technique, composition, and
creativity. Rotary chair, Grace Yang-Antonides commented “Art is invaluable in nurturing creativity and
developing culture. It is at the heard of humanity. This is why the Rotary Club of San Marino supports
student art.”

For grades 3-5, the theme was Water is Life. The middle grade had two categories: painting and
drawing; and 2D mixed medium and 3D art. The high school categories were: painting;
sketching/drawing; 2D mixed medium and graphic art; photography; 3D art; and digital media/video.

Judges were Louis Felix, Atilio Pernisco and Grace Yang, all affiliated with the Art Center College of
Design, and Alex Cabalu a Fil-Am, raised in an art environment. With Covid-19 restrictions, entries were
judged by Zoom.

Art contest sponsors were Christine Chui, a former S.M. Rotarian, and San Marino Rotary Charities.
Committee members also included Georg Johansing and Russ Osmonson.

THE BUSINESS PLAN competition was coordinated with the help and guidance of Mr. Isaac Hung. Mrs. Courtney Rushing introduced each student during our meeting, then the students took the lead and delivered their innovative plans. A learning management system, boba tea shop, and other unique ideas highlighted some of the creative genius that exists in San Marino. The students never cease to amaze. The panel of judges consists of Rotarians Paul Brassard, Nicole Basseri and John Donovan had difficult time ranking these incredible entries.
Final outcome: First Place, Project Edge by Marcus Chua. Second Place, Gradient School by Andrew Keefer and Megan Lee. Third Place, Sam's Boba Tea by Samuel Fu.

The business plans were incredible!

Thanks, Nicole


The Rotary Club of San Marino had our own elite 8 (eight) competitors from surrounding schools for our recent Dan Stover Music Competition. That may seem like a big number but our competitors were all prepared and ready to play thanks to the good planning of Paul Brassard. Paul prepared our judges, one of whom was a past winner of the Dan Stover Competition. Melissa Brassard judged the contest, along with Pamela Lee. Both offered their perspectives while listening and watching our (8) competitors.

The winners:
1st. Place Nicole Lam – Piano from LACHSA (Los Angeles County High School for the Art)
2nd place Carolyn Tsai – Flute from SMHS (Los Angeles County High School for the Art)
3d place Camille Gutierrez-Piano from Monrovia High School

2 Honorable Mention: Nathaniel Chen – Oboe from LACHSA(Los Angeles County High School for the Art),
Danielle Tsai – Violin from Flintridge Prep
