Clackamas High School Illustration Contest
“I Gave the Sun a Bath”
This time Lawrence’s support of children takes a hands-on-approach with the students of Clackamas High School in Clackamas, Oregon. Lawrence has developed a contest to support students’ creativity path by offering an opportunity to be the illustrator of her upcoming children’s book, I Gave The Sun A Bath, an environmentally conscious motivational picture book. The illustration contest, in cooperation with Clackamas High School, was made available to all the art students.
Four winners were announced on May 12th, 2014 (note, that the original contest stated only three winners, but the contestants were so good, we simply had to honor the top four winners.)
- First Place winner with rights to illustrate the entire book “I Gave the Sun a Bath”, Zoe Clegg.
- Second Place winner, Liana Tarasenko.
- Third Place winner, Carly Musser.
- Fourth Place winner, Johanna Hausmann.
The top four winners were delivered monetary prizes.
All of the students worked very hard on their illustration. For recognition of that and their talent I announced today that all the students participating in the contest will have one of their page entries published in the back of the book! A way to say keep up the good work and that I believe in each of them and know that they can do anything that they put their mind to!”
Marilyn has done it again. ” What a brilliant idea!”, stated Clackamas High School Art Teacher Ms Kayser.
“Lending a hand of inspiration to our children will make a better tomorrow for all of us. With encouragement and positive guidance, all barriers can be broken, revealing brilliant possibilities. Remember to reach out to help make a difference of good in anyway that you can. I was able to with this contest. You can use the tools you have available to you.
One never knows until they try just how much of a difference they can make.”
A panel of judges will help determine the winners. Judges include the author, editor, Kay Derochie, Michael Paul and April Sunset of Fuseology Creative.
“A special thank you to Clackamas High School and art teacher, Ms Kayser for their help in making the illustration contest available to the students.
Thank you to Michael Paul of Fuseology Creative and Kay Derochie, editor for helping with the difficult task of judging the contest.”
