I just received word that Bruster won 4th place in the 3rd grade division of Crayola's Annual On-line Art Exhibition. His art work, "Eco-Friendly Fuel," will be published in the Crayola Art Exhibition book, scheduled for release by March, 2009.
The theme of the competition was "Go Green." As a bird enthusiast, Bruster wanted to paint a picture of a bird. He had completed the winning picture earlier in the year for the Youth Birding Competition's Art Contest. He noticed that the hummingbird eats good fuel and decided to write a statement about the good stewardship of using alternative fuels.
You can see his winning art and statement here.
Congratulations, Bruster! Mommy is so excited for you!
