The annual iCreate exhibition centers on an array of works infused with the creative spirit and impactful voices of budding young artists. iCreate serves as an outlet for these emerging artists, amplifying the scope of their pieces’ influence and providing the community a glimpse into local artistic potential. The works are of diverse mediums and explore different themes ranging from critiques of traditional social constructs to playful portraits, to statements regarding animal extinction.
Each high school student may submit up to three examples of their artwork for consideration.
The Westchester County Office of Economic Development’s SBA Application Assistance Program is soliciting volunteers to help small businesses complete applications for the following programs:

The training will be provided by webinar, and the materials and step-by-step application guides will be provided to the volunteers.
The volunteers will not be providing guidance/recommendations on which loan programs to apply for, but rather will be addressing specific questions on the application(s) selected by the applicant.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help should email EconomicDevelopment@westchestergov.com.
