Ella's art is first in Southwestern Ontario and moving on to the Provincial Level. Go Ella!

Way back in October, Ella was encouraged by her art teacher at school to enter a Remembrance Day Art contest held by the Royal Canadian Legion.  Ella drew a beautiful black and white poster of soldiers in forest brush, escaping a war camp.  Today, she told me that she won $100 for her art.  She explained that a lady from the Legion came to her school and presented her the framed certificate and cheque for $100 in front of her class.  She has been awarded first place in Southwestern Ontario for her poster (out of 1800 entries), and Ella's art moves on to the Provincial level where her poster will be in the primary (grades 1-3) black and white poster division.  She is so passionate about drawing.  Hours and hours, and too many filled sketchbooks to count.  So glad she's getting a bit of recognition for all her hard work.  I'm so proud of her.  Way to go Ella!
