Congratulations to our $5,000 scholarship winner!!!

Wow! We here at TBHA are so excited about the number of entries we had for our $5,000 scholarship contest. We had well over 150 entries from NY, MA, RI, CT, NJ, NH, and ME and who knew that the spirit of Picasso lived in so many of New England's children?! Every entry was a masterpiece and we wish that we could give $5,000 to all of those who entered, but a 6-year-old girl from East Boston named Daryanna was our lucky winner!
