LEAF Umbrella Project
The LEAF Umbrella Project is funded through grants and fundraising activities to provide upper level art and engineering students with an experiential educational challenge that provides for development of their skills. Scholarships are awarded and are authentically judged in February.
The community is invited to view all the umbrellas created by various schools in Lake County on the following dates:
January 24 - February 6, 2022: Student umbrellas will be on public display on the Lake Erie College campus. The TOP50 chosen will move on to the scholarship evaluation round.
Week of February 21st: The TOP50 umbrellas are on display at Lighthouse Advisors.
February 25 - April 20: All umbrellas are on exhibit at the Great Lakes Mall in Mentor.
April 23, 2:00pm - 5:00pm: The Singing in the Rain Event will take place at Great Lakes Mall. The TOP35 student-designed umbrellas, based upon round 2 judging, will be auctioned to benefit the programs and scholarships offered by LEAF. Each student walks the runway to boast their creation. LEAF art and engineering scholarships are announced.
