Juana won the back cover illustration contest. Her work is on page 65 of the anthology, which available online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
As a winner, Juana and her art teacher Matthew Kirkpatrick attended the iWrite Literacy Luncheon and Book Signing held earlier this month at the Hilton American in downtown Houston.
This is the second time a student from the magnet school has won in the illustration contest. Last year, La’Jasha Champion won the book cover design.
The iWrite Literacy nonprofit organization offers students (Grades 3-12) the opportunity to submit short stories, poetry and artwork to the annual publishing contest I Write Short Stories by Kids for Kids. Each year, the nonprofit selects 65 winners to be published in the anthology. Since 2009, iWrite Literacy has published hundreds of kids in its anthologies and encouraged thousands of them to read and write.
“It has been a pleasure to see Juana grow as an artist and gain recognition,” said Kirkpatrick. “She continues to develop her skills in digital design and overcomes design challenges to meet the expectations in the classroom and with her clients.”
