As you know, we host art (celebratingart.com) and writing (poeticpower.com) contests. I would like to share some of the contest winners as they give permission.
When we receive an entry in the contest we have a digital entry. What personalizes the entry is the story behind the art. As we have announced the Top Ten Winners for the Fall 2011 art contest, we have asked the winners to give us permission to share their art. Let me introduce home school artist Kelsey Morgan Chase Faucett from South Carolina.
Kelsey is in the 7th grade and was not only our contest’s very first entry, but over the last three contests she has been a Top Ten winner three times. This is a record, but as I always say, if you don’t enter, you don’t have a chance to win.
Here is what she has to say.
“My drawing’s name is Night Owl. I love drawing owls because of their beautiful eyes. It is almost as if you can see what they are thinking. Night owl was one of my favorite drawings. It won Best of Show at our fair but was stolen the last night of the fair. I believe everything happens for a reason and good can always come from bad. So I decided to draw a Barn Owl on a branch and donate it to our local American Cancer Society Relay for Life. It is to be auctioned at the next Relay Night for our town.
It is a true honor to be picked as a Top Ten Winner. Thank you so much for having this contest.”
Thanks for sharing Kelsey. Keep up the good work.
