My name is Joshua Olinger. I am 16 years old. I have been apart of fine arts for 2 years now. Fine Arts is a Godly competition that people compete in to earn scholarships for any Assembly of God college they want to go to. This year, I went to state in Wichita, and came home with three superiors with invitations and two excellents. Those three superiors gave me the opportunity to stand before national judges, and get constructive criticism and scholarship money. Nationals is in Anaheim California. For those of you that didn't know this, I live in Kansas. So I have to pay the air fair and the hotel expenses, which add up to $1,100. I made my goal $2,000 because there are 43 other students that are going on this trip with me. That's $47,300 all together. So any extra money pledged would go towards other kids that need financial help. But the way that I plan to stand before those judges requires something bigger than me, and that's you. You are a part of one of the most important group of people to me; the group of people that allowed God to move through me. Thank you for your support and may God bless you and your household.
