A distinguished panel of judges has selected a Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Boys & Girls Club member to be a part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2012 ImageMakers National Photography Contest.
Najahahn Jenkins’ photos “Ghost” & “See Through” in the Alternative and Digital categories respectively were selected along with 18 other photographs as a winner of the ImageMakers National Photography Contest from thousands submitted by aspiring young artists in Clubs and Youth Centers across the nation.
Josh Huling heads up the ImageMakers Program at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club in Central Oklahoma.
“I am thrilled that Najahahn’s creativity and dedication are being recognized on a national level,” said Megan Brown-Ellis, unit director for The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. “I am equally proud of Josh Huling and his now multi-award winning photography program.”
The ImageMakers National Photography Contest winners will be displayed at various Boys & Girls Clubs of America conferences and will be viewed by hundreds of conference delegates throughout the year.
”We aren’t surprised at the level of talent our kids have at the Club,” said Richard White, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club. “Najahahn is one of the shining stars of Josh Huling’s photography program at the Club. We are very proud of his accomplishments and that he will represent The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club on a national basis.”
A plaque and letter from Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America will be presented to Jenkins. In addition, the image will be placed on bgca.org in the virtual gallery for viewing in the future.
