Miranda's future as a nature artist are looking bright!
On Friday, I opened a letter from the John Janzen Nature Centre, that was addressed to Miranda. Inside, it congratulated her, saying her artwork has been selected as one of 14 pieces that was awarded FIRST place!! Her artwork will appear in the "Edmonton's Wild Backyard" 2008 calendar. The contest was open to all children in the city from grades 1-12.
As a first place winner, her artwork will be
- featured as a large image in the calendar
- on public exhibition at the launch event at the JJNC on October 14th from 1-4pm
- on public display at the JJNC for 2008 (and will be returned to her by Jan 2009)
I have not seen her picture, but she says it is of an american robin pulling a worm out of the ground, an owl sleeping in a tree, and three humming birds flying to some flowers to eat.
