First place winner

O. Padilla Angulo | James Shields Middle School

O. Padilla Angulo’s favorite thing about school is that he can hang out with his friends and talk with his teachers. His favorite subject is math and one of his favorite hobbies is drawing. He is studying robotics, which he hopes will lead to a career as an automotive engineer. His illustration for the holiday card was inspired by his love of drawing sunsets, and added the river and pine trees to his well-practiced sunset work.
