Juliana Asturias really enjoys creating artwork, but a recent project is her crowning glory.
The Bristow, Virginia, 10-year-old won a national contest to design a heavy paper crown for Burger King. Juliana beat 75,000 other kids with her smiling burgers and letters spelling out “Burger Kid.”
“I thought I could be creative. I could make burgers, and they could be the king,” Juliana said of her inspiration.
Burger King told the family last month that Juliana was one of four finalists. Kids age 12 and younger then could vote online. The principal at Victory Elementary School brought Juliana on the morning news to ask students to vote.
Juliana was the top vote-getter and won a trip to Legoland Park in Florida. Her crown will be given away at Burger Kings in January, but Juliana has something special in mind for her school. “My mom is thinking if we can contact the company and get a lot, then we can have crown day at school.”
