To apply for the scholarship, students were asked to first read Banana, which explores the history of America’s most popular fruit. Students were then asked to create projects addressing key themes of the book. Each of the scholarship recipients approached the project using their own skills and interests. They will present a business-oriented blog, a hip-hop composition, and two paintings based on the book. This is the second of Olivia Yin's paintings based on the book. View the first one here.
