APL Comic Contest for Kids
Thanks to everyone who participated in our comics contest, and congratulations to our winners! And a huge thank you to Lee Post for giving us our prompts and judging the contest.
Our week one winner in the 8-11 category is Blake S. Lee says "The expressions and the pictures are really strong. The comic also does a very good job of showing the friendship between the moose and snowman. I want to see more!!"
Our 12-14 winner is Sophia P. Lee says "I really love the design, the lettering, and the bold colors. I also like that Sophia was being so polite to the readers and brave enough to call talking owls out for not having good boundaries with friends."
Our 8-11 winner for week 2 is Carson H. Lee says "It is a wild story, but clearly drawn with a funny 'stomp' line at the end."
In the 8-11 category, our winner is Silas B. Lee says "Silas did a wonderful job all around. I loved the humor and expressions. They even did an excellent job making the titles fun and part of the story."
Our 12-14 category winner is RD. Lee says "RD drew such a cute comic and I really loved how expressive their art is. The turtle's expressions are darling and it was fun looking for it peeking behind the panda in each panel."
