Name: Britney
Age: 6
State: California

Congratulations to Britney, for her incredible entry, "Britney Is Building a Sand Castle at the Lovely Beach." She used crayons, colored pencils, a black gel pen for outlining, and a sparkling gel pen for final touches.

"I'm the girl with the ponytail and cap," says Britney, "and I'm reaching out to my little sister, Emily. We are eating Popsicles® at the beach."

"Britney draws a lot," says her mom. "She spends about an hour a day drawing pictures and sharing them with family. She also likes to make her own creative storybooks." Britney's other interests include singing, dancing, swimming, and playing video games with her daddy. But Britney's dream is to become an artist and writer and create many children's books. "She hopes to borrow her own books from the library one day," adds her mom.

Seven-year-old Samuel won second place for his outstanding entry, "Me Sailing the Wide-Open Seas!" He used pencils, oil pastels, and markers for his creation. "I did this in my art class at school," Sam says. "The ship is headed to the Philippines so I can see my grandma."

"Sam loves to draw," says his mom, "and he draws often. He also likes to swim and play basketball. He would like to have a dog, but he can't because of his allergies." Travel seems to be in Sam's future. "When I grow up, I want to be a pilot!" he told us.
