The winner of this event was Aoi Ketterman who drew Beyonce. Second place was Summer Canter who drew Rosa Parks. Third place was Evelyn Hardy who drew Harriet Tubman.
“It actually enables them to not only express their own creativity throughout their drawing, but then they are actually researching you know who stands out to them and who’s important role models to them,” Regional Sales Manager, Teresa Amick.
First place took home $500. Second place took home $200. Third place took home $100.
