Dear Santa Fe Youth who participated in this effort,
Thank you. Even if your work did not win, and even when it was disqualified for not precisely following the details and guidelines. All of your photos were beautiful. There was only a single shot that we can’t remember.
Please, keep speaking your truth and telling your stories to every person that you can. You are so valuable, your perspective essential.
-Santa Fe’s MPO
Why the highlight? The word here is supposed to mean the “the participation of an individual in the creation of transportation infrastructure”. Every transportation project, all our infrastructure, begins with an idea inside the head of a person. Thank you then, for sharing your ideas
