Naomi West Wins Skillman Foundation’s Float Design Contest

 

Congratulations to Naomi West, first place winner of the 23rd annual Skillman Foundation’s Float Design Contest! Naomi, an eighth-grader at Detroit’s Earhart Elementary-Middle School, won a float design contest sponsored by the Parade Company and the Skillman Foundation. A float based on her drawing was unveiled earlier this month at the Parade Company studio. The 23rd annual Skillman Foundation’s Float Design Contest was open to Detroit public and charter students in grades four through eight.

The budding artist was also the Renaissance (MI) Chapter’s first place Category 3 art winner at the Links Incorporated National Assembly in Orlando in 2012.

We’re so proud of you, Naomi!
