The contest is now closed. Congratulations to the winners and to all who submitted. The art was beautiful and
narrowing it down to five was very difficult!

The five winners of this contest will have their kite-themed art featured on SCBWI promotional postcards used
by both the SCBWI main office as well as all of the regions around the country and the world. They will also receive
a $50 gift certificate for art supplies, as well as exposure on our website and social media. The winners' names will be on
the front of the postcard with the art.
