Golden Paintbrush Awards Mel Hebert's photo, idea, and quote. "What I say when I announce the awards is this, "The highly coveted golden paintbrush awards are given to those students who not only show tremendous skill, but those who are problem solvers. These students care deeply about their work and don't ask the question, 'is this good enough?, but 'is this my best?'"
