This past September, we asked kids across the country to choose their favorite president and draw a portrait of him for Scholastic Book Clubs first-ever "Picture a President" Drawing Contest. Nearly 12,000 students sent in drawings of U.S. Presidents -- from George Washington, to Franklin Pierce, to President-elect Barack Obama.
Helena Bundy, a 10-year-old from Duarte, Calif., won the grand prize (a trip to Washington, D.C.) for her portrait of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States. Ten finalists also won a collection of presidential books.
The "Picture a President" Portrait Gallery will be on display at the Inaugural Fest in Washington, D.C. January 16-24 and in the lobby of Scholastic, Inc. headquarters in New York City until March.
