    i am so happy for jade curtiss. imagine a 3rd grader at kenwood having an imagination that is so wonderful that it wins art contests. jade is on the way to winning more contests and even awards in the education future. but not only during school years, but in her future after school is over. i am sure her family life inspires her to give her all. she is so beautiful too. i hope there are plenty of big autographed pictures available. i am hoping to get one, and i will be searching for one just for my scrapbook. my complements to jade curtiss and all the other contestants who participated in the contest.

    sincerely,

    pamela bias
