Thanks to all the teachers and young artists who submitted such fine work to our children's art contest. It wasn't easy choosing from among the many excellent entries!

The winner and creator of the beautiful image on our cover is Ji Hyoung (Jennifer) Yoon, left.

Jennifer is 11 years old and a sixth grader at Haycock Elementary School in Falls Church. She goes to special art classes, which explains her sure hand and good eye. When she isn't drawing, she's playing golf or making music on the violin and piano. Her favorite books are The Giver, by Lois Lowry, and The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin. When she grows up, she hopes to be a lawyer, architect or interior designer.

The art displayed here represents our Honorable Mentions. For our full list of 20 winners, please see the gallery at here.
