Campbell community briefs for the week of Feb. 26

Ellenberg judges youth art

Santa Clara County Supervisor Susan Ellenberg, whose district includes Campbell, was among the judges of the “To Be Honest” art contest sponsored by Momentum for Health.

Kalen Gallagher, president of the Campbell Union High School District board of trustees, also helped choose the winners from among 111 submissions by Santa Clara County residents ages 14-25.

Drawings, paintings, sculptures, jewelry, music, digital art, videos and poetry were submitted on the theme “My Mental Health in 2020.”

“We tried to lift some of the restraints young people have been living under for the past 11 months by allowing them to choose their preferred mediums,” Momentum President/CEO David Mineta said in a statement. “This was also an opportunity for young artists to communicate to the community how the pandemic is affecting their mental health.”

Momentum for Health is a nonprofit provider of adult and youth behavioral health services in Santa Clara County.
