Upper Midwest Photo Gallery and Competition!

The Upper Midwest Region hosted our inaugural Photo Gallery Opening on December 3rd at the NPH USA Office in Minneapolis.  We had nearly 80 entries for the photography and writing competition.  The gallery was curated by a committee made up of Pequeñas who grew up in our NPH Mexico home and members of our Associate Board.  The following photos each won their category.  Local friends, please stop by our office in the next year to see the photos on display. 
We hope you enjoy the small glimpses into life at our NPH homes as much as we do!
Check back for our next post to read the poem by the winner of the writing competition.
