"Twenty-nine kids entered from around the globe, including Scotland," McHugh said. "It was a tough job narrowing it down to four winners. They were all so darned great!"
"I was amazed at the talent demonstrated in the entries!" said Parker. "What impressed me the most was how well the personalities and spirit of the characters were captured in the drawings, while maintaining originality."
The winners were:
Olivia, age 9, Vanceburg, Ky.
Paco, age 10, Tollesboro, Ky.
Rebecca, age 10, Scotland
Alex, age 12, Mays Lick, Ky.
The talented winners received a copy of Broomsticks signed with a personal note of thanks from McHugh and Parker. Winners also received a congratulatory certificate.
McHugh and Parker would like to thank all the kids who entered. Each and every artist really kicked some creative magic!
