Innovative Young Problem Solvers Awarded at Step Up Competition

Sorry for the back to back posts, but I am just so proud of my daughter Annabelle and Team Resi-lution for their hard work, dedication, and passion! I so admire these young people! Thank you Loudoun Now for writing this article on Step Up Loudoun Youth!

Dozens of students working to solve challenging community problems pitched their ideas to a panel of judges April 11 as part of Loudoun Youth Inc.’s annual Step Up competition. This year’s winning projects will help control litter at the Beaverdam Reservoir as it reopens for public activities th...

Congratulations Team Resi-lution! I'm so proud of you for all of your hard work and dedication to this project! Your passion and love for our local park and for each other reminds me that young people are making this world a better place! Thank you for being an inspiration to me and to our community!

Brambleton, VA–Four Brambleton Middle School students and one Rock Ridge High School student win 1st place at the April 11th Step Up Loudoun Youth Competition, which encourages middle and high school youth across the county to identify an issue in their school, neighborhood or community, create a plan to address that issue, and implement the plan. The goal is to encourage, support and reward the youth of Loudoun County for making positive changes in their own lives and the lives of others.

Team Resi-lution, consisting of sixth grade students Carter Casagrande, Annabelle Monte, Ava Turrichi, and Joseph Waxvik and High School Student Lacey Tanner, established a task force to monitor and remove trash from local park Beaverdam Creek Reservoir. Members of Team Resi-lution have lead clean ups of Beaverdam since 2015 removing over 2 tons of trash with clean ups each year. Team Resi-lution is raising money to build and install a shed at or nearby Beaverdam Creek Reservoir so that volunteers of civics groups like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will have easy access to clean up supplies and may host clean ups or simply clean up trails at any time. Team Resi-lution is also working to install cameras at problem areas where dumping occurs at the reservoir. The $1,000 prize money that Team Resi-lution won at the Step Up Loudoun Youth Competition will be used to help the team continue their efforts to keep Beaverdam Creek Reservoir clean and healthy.

I’m so honored to be included in my client’s artwork. Alex, age 5, recently brought home a drawing from school depicting his family. He said that his drawing shows “that place where (we) were getting our family pictures taken. We were throwing leaves up in the air. So that’s us standing in front of the fence at Morven Park.” Which makes me—the photographer, the cat with the camera! 😂📷 Thank you Alex!🙏💜

Recently I volunteered my time and talent to Studio Bleu's Theatrical production of Thoroughly Modern Millie--what a talented group of young actors, vocalists and dancers. I had a great time behind the lens for both performances. And it did help that I got to capture my baby girl on stage as one of the Priscilla Girls.
