Tessa – 2008 Elementary School Grand Prize Winner

“I love books. Mommy says that I have loved books since I was in her tummy waiting for my birthday. I also love making things. When I heard Mommy telling her students about the Igniting Creative Energy Challenge, I decided that I could write and illustrate my very own book while making things and that is how ‘ABC’s in My Trash’ began. Maybe because I’m smaller, or younger, or shorter. I see things through imagination eyes.”
