Young artists draw their healthy lifestyles
Date:10/14/2011

BOSTON This year's American Academy of Pediatrics National Children's Art Contest drew hundreds of entries from 39 states and 10 countries.

With the theme of "My Healthy Lifestyle," the 2011 contest invited children to submit original art conveying messages about obesity, diet, exercise, sleep and limiting screen time. This was the Academy's eighth annual art contest.

Winners of the three age groups each receive a $500 cash prize with matching amounts for their schools at the AAP's National Conference and Exhibition in Boston on October 15, in front of an audience of several thousand pediatricians from across the world.

Second-place winners, and their schools, each received $250. The winners' artwork will be on display at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center during the meeting and posted to the AAP's web site at aap.org.

The winners are:

  • Grades 3-5: Raissa Li, of Hastings Elementary School in Lexington, Mass.
  • Grades 6-8: Adam Carr, of Woodland Park, Colo. Adam is homeschooled.
  • Grades 9-12: Kenny Mok, of Mark Keppel High School in Alhambra, Calif.
  • International division: Avijit Saha, of Rahara Nibedita Art Centre, West Bengal, India.
