The 2021 VEAs returned in style!

We shook things up this year and came back bigger and better than ever before! Not only did we celebrate with this year’s finalists, but we also invited last year’s finalists who missed out on the chance to celebrate their achievements in person! We were also joined by so many of you virtually and we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did!
