    Yay! There was an art contest thing at my school a few months ago, and you could enter a visual piece(painting, etc...), a written story, or a musical piece. So, since I'm good at drawing horses, etc. I decided I would enter a piece. I have learned a lot from my dad about drawing, and I have come quite a long way since I first started drawing. [​IMG]

    So, I draw a picture by pencil of a horse head...made the mountains in the background, with the sun and the birds...etc...and I entered it on the due date. I did a good job, I just wasn't expecting much from it...I was thinking maybe I would come in 5th or 4th place...I mean there were entries from middle school to high school! There must be a lot! [​IMG]

    So, I waited for a few months. And waited...I actually forgot all about it! [​IMG] Until last week, when my teacher gave me a letter from the contest people and it said...

    Name: (my name)
    Place: 2nd!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    "Your piece stood out from more than 300 other entries. blah blah blah..."

    I was soo surprised!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I didn't expect to come in 2nd place! [​IMG] I'm so happy! [​IMG]

    I'm going to the awards ceremony next week with some of my family...But my mom has to work...so....she can't go...... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But anyway, thanks for reading! I heard that I may get like $100 or more! LOL I am going to save it up and buy some chicken stuff!(that's actually the first thing I thought of when I heard that winners get some money..! lol) [​IMG] [​IMG] It's all you guys' fault!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
