Talented Virginia girl wins art honors

-- Yesterday we told you about the Centreville class that won a trip to the new Harry Potter theme park in Orlando. Here's another local competition winner and a contest you can enter this month.

Manassas resident Alyssa Gibson, 10, won second place in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association's annual drawing contest. The theme of this year's contest was "Protecting your hearing . . . you need it for a lifetime." Alyssa highlighted ways kids can protect their hearing. The winning drawings are at http://www.asha.org/bhsm.

The winner will become the official bookmark of First Book. Have an adult download the form at http://www.firstbook.org. The deadline is June 30.
