Check out this year's theme:

No One is Alone

We are all interconnected and our actions affect each other, even in isolation. What one person does may affect others in unexpected or unintended ways. Yet, in our loneliest hour we still depend on each other for food, water, shelter, and more. To paraphrase the poem by John Donne, No one is an island. Have you ever felt alone in a crowd? Or accepted by strangers? What can make us reach across a barrier, group, or isolating situation to connect with someone? In what ways can creativity create bridges between the isolated or lonely?
