I attended the 25th Anniversary awards for the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contest on August 29th with a writing friend. It’s the third year in a row I have attended, and this one was the best–by far.
What was really cool (this time) was that I knew two of the 1st place winners from the WOTF Forum. Jordan Lapp and Emery Huang. Emery took home the coveted Red Trophy for Writer and I couldn’t be more proud of him. I’m glad one of my forum buddies won.
But, the coolest thing of all was when Don Hartsell, Managing Director of World Sky Race announced that the Grand Prize Writer and Grand Prize Illustrator would both get a trip on one of the legs of this race. WOW! I’m quite jealous.
Grats! Emery Huang (writer) and Grats! Oleksandra Barysheva (illustrator). Think of us ground-based wannabes while you are soaring over fantastic vistas!
