Our 2016-2017 T-shirt Design Contest Winner!

We had a lot of great submissions for our t-shirt design contest this year. Thank you for all of the creative entries! Kristi Valiant, illustrator of Cora Cooks Pancit on our book list this year had the tough job of deciding which t-shirt design should be featured on our Battle of the Books t-shirts. (We're so thankful you took on this challenge!)

After studying the actual designs, the concept for each design, and how the design elements work together to create a piece that speaks to the Battle of the Books event, Kristi chose the submission hand-drawn by Olivia Hudson, a 4th grader at Stringtown Elementary.

Congratulations, Olivia! Your team, Charging Through the Chapters, gets free t-shirts this year! Thank you for submitting your art for this contest. We love it!
