E-Chievement Award: Gabrielle Posard
2013 was the inaugural year for eTown’s Handmade Songs, eTown’s new music program for young, aspiring songwriters that gives high school songwriters the opportunity to perform and record their own original music. Out of 35 entrants, four high school musicians from Boulder County were selected as finalists: Students Emily Hawkins, Isabelle Davis, Linden Jackson, and Ethan Cohen were chosen by a panel of judges for their compositions and were awarded the opportunity to professionally record their handmade songs for an EP entitled eTown’s Handmade Songs Volume One. Our E-Chievement Award story this week also features a driven high school student committed to keeping food out of the landfill and getting it to people in need.
