REWARDING CREATIVITY

first_img Ashlee said this was her first time to enter the TroyFest T-shirt Design Contest and she “sort of” thought she might have a chance to win.“My design was real colorful,” she said. “It was a tambourine with different colored cymbals around the side. It had a paintbrush to hit the tambourine with. The paintbrush had an orange handle and brush was purple. The colors weren’t all in the lines. It looked like art.”Ashlee said she is excited to be the winner of the 2013 TroyFest T-shirt Design Contest but feels a little “awkward” knowing that her artwork will be seen by so many people.“I hope they like it,” she said.
