Union League Club of Chicago Gives me No Prize

So i had applied for a scholarship award opportunity at the Union League Club of Chicago. I entered some of the same work that i did into the Honors exhibition. However the Honors award, which was judged by some of the leading women in art in Chicago, granted me first place. But the Union League Club informed me today via email that though they see much "merit" in my work they have not chosen me for anything. This is fine you cant win them all. I could have used the money to make more work but it's ok. I had been told that the Union League usually awards more imagery and traditional kinda work which really doesn't fit me. So in that sens i guess thats ok because I'd like to think I'm exploring more contemporary outlets in my issues. But I appreciate the email and the opportunity to compete given to me by of the Union League Club of Chicago. Now ill just have to work even harder. No fuss no muss. or however the saying goes. Next.
