According to the CDC, suicide is the second leading cause of death among individuals between the ages of 10-14 and 25-34. Local organization The GEM Project (Goal Everyone Matters) provides high school students an opportunity to artistically express their support for those experiencing depressive thoughts or thoughts of self-harm.

Selected works created by regional teens for The 2022 GEM Project Art Contest will be on display throughout Wright Library for the month of August.
