Make A Wish Of Northeastern New York grants wish of the year

Make-A-Wish Northeastern New York is being honored for granting the wish of the year.

The organization has received the wish innovation award.

The award recognizes the wish of Esme Savoie of Troy, a non-verbal child who wanted to be the subject of a museum exhibit.

The exhibit at the arts center of the Capital Region in Troy, was titled Esmé’s Stories: a magical journey.

It got its inspiration from autobiographical tales sprinkled with fantasy penned by the 11-year-old.
