A great new winning design for the 2016 Phillips Community Clean Sweep T-Shirt has been created by the imagination and talent of Jennifer Gomez. Jennifer responded to flyers passed out to area schools, churches, parks and neighborhood organizations asking neighborhood youth to compete to create the best 2016 Clean Sweep T-Shirt Design. 400 T-Shirts are given away each year at the gala Phillips Community Clean Sweep ”“ all with Jennifer”'s design. Of the many excellent entries, the selection committee chose Jennifer”'s above all the rest. Her concept of multiethnic children holding hands and dancing together captured the spirit of the event perfectly. Nicely done Jennifer and a huge thank you to all the other participants for their wonderful entries. Thank you all!

As chair of the T-Shirt committee, I had the great pleasure of meeting Jennifer at the incredible new Banyan Community Center at 2529 13th Ave. S, Mpls, MN. Jennifer just turned 15 and is the oldest of three siblings. She has a 12-year old brother who also loves art and a 10-year old sister. Jennifer is a freshman at De LaSalle and loves Algebra and English. Ms. Gomez wants to go to college and dreams of being a veterinarian because of her love of dogs and animals.

Jennifer will receive her $50.00 grand prize and two Clean Sweep T-Shirts at the lunch festivities at Stewart Park at about 12:30 PM on October 8th. We hope everyone will come to the Phillips Community Clean Sweep this year and especially to the award ceremony to cheer for Jennifer.
