Constituting America’s Conrad Ainslie Bauman Elementary School Artwork Award is named after Conrad Ainslie Bauman, age 19 months, who was born on February 22, 2014 and passed away on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 in the loving arms of his parents, Paul and Victoria Bauman after a fervent fight with an extremely rare form of leukemia. Conrad is finally at peace in heaven. A sweet, precious baby, Conrad was known by his family and friends to be full of joy and smiles. He was friendly to all – a real people person – always waving and blowing kisses to those he knew and those he wanted to befriend. His infectious smile, soft touch and sparkling blue eyes melted hearts. He loved reading with his mother, animals both real and stuffed, airplanes flying in the sky, anything with a loud motor, walks with his parents, rides on golf carts, playing with his cousins and grandparents, and being surrounded by people. Conrad also loved art and artwork. Conrad taught those who knew him to find joy in simple things, to be courageous and to live passionately as everyday is a gift. Conrad’s mother, Victoria Bauman, has served on Constituting America’s Advisory Board since its inception in 2010, and Victoria has assisted on numerous Winner Mentor Trips over the years. Victoria’s grandparents, and Conrad’s great grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Hubbard, have generously supported Constituting America since its founding in 2010.
