Tonight Violet was awarded Artist of Merit at the Young Authors/Illustrators Ceremony.
Grades Kindergarten thru third from the eighteen Lee's Summit elementary schools where recognized.
Her illustration was published in a book that every student received.
Violet was super excited because her illustration made the beginning page of the Second grade section of the book.
A local author spoke to the kids first and congratulated each student. She said we didn't need to stay and talk with the author because we have one at home :).
