'I walk Grandpa'

1999 contest finalists tell us how they help others

Sovonte helps her sister tie her shoes. Aaron helped his church sandbag during the flood. Becky walks Grandpa.

The Lutheran staff tried to select a representation of ideas from the 350 entries we received. The 20 finalists will receive a "Youngchurch" water bottle. All the art will be made into calendars to remind people to help others throughout the year.
