'Heartbeat of Home' album cover contest
Announcing our winner: Congratulations to Jayna Pizzo, age 10, of Lakeville!
Young Maine artists ages 5-18 were invited to participate in a state-wide art contest held by the Maine Volunteer Foundation and the Maine Commission for Community Service. The winning image will be featured as the cover for an album titled Heartbeat of Home, which will be sold through digital download sites, such as iTunes, as a fundraiser for the Maine Volunteer Foundation.
Heartbeat of Home is a musical collaboration featuring Maine artists that brings together the power of spoken word and music. This 12-track album celebrates the people, legends, places and ideas that make Maine the special place it is today. Featuring over a dozen Maine artists from across the state, the project is led by Maine Celtic singer and producer Kristyn Murphy.
The Maine Volunteer Foundation and the Maine Commission for Community Service work together to strengthen Maine’s volunteer sector through grants, training, and technical assistance related to volunteer powered solutions to community issues. Any proceeds from the Heartbeat of Maine project will support training and technical assistance for volunteer efforts in rural Maine communities.
