Social Media Challenges

The 2022 Express Yourself Challenge

The Daniel J. Hollis Foundation, Inc. created the Express Yourself Challenge to benefit young people in their pursuit of the creative arts. Whether music, movement, or visual art we hope to provide opportunities for young people to explore their own creativity and share their gifts with others. We hope this challenge will inspire you to explore new and different creative outlets while benefitting the community-at-large.
