The work is an acrylic on canvas that shows two young people, one black, the other white sharing, an ice cream cone. Kandakai took home a $125 cheque, plus a certificate, plaque and medallion. The presentations took place April 11 at the MacKenzie Art Gallery where 14 of the art works were exhibited. They will be displayed at the North American Interfaith Network (NAIN) conference scheduled for July 11-22 at Luther College, University of Regina and are available as an exhibition to any high school that requests it. Multi-Faith Saskatchewan will exhibit the works at all its functions this year.
