Winner of the Art Supplies Contest: Jack Sanders

There's an old Woody Allen saying that states 80% of success is showing up.  Jack Sanders showed up.  He won.

Jack wrote an interesting, precisely-37-word story.  We'll never know how his story might have compared with other budding writers ... because his was the ONLY entry.  There are probably many reasons why others might not have shown up but we'll never know what they were.  But Jack did and we think his attitude of showing up will take him far in life.

As for today, his winning story means a $100 check for art supplies is on its way to Minarets High School, where he is a senior.  Here's his story related to the image above:
Upon the winding leaves of time the majestic caterpillar gnaws away on scrumptious fragments of delicacy-- eras of time enriched with such utter brilliance as to nourish the caterpillar for eternity, to one day become a butterfly.
Thanks, Jack, for playing!

And for everyone concerned about the state of art education in our schools, I can assure you that even small donations for art supplies will be wildly appreciated.  I donated $25 raised from my last show and was treated like a hero!
