It was a long time to wait. Ana entered the RGV Children’s Arts Festival last fall, when she was still 10 years old. Finally in July, she was surprised to learn that she is one of the 2019-20 winners! See what happened when she found out in this video >>>
Ana Ponce, now 11 years old, was 10 when she entered the RGV Children’s Arts Festival with this beautiful painting and written answer to this question based on John 11:47-57 — Why did religious leaders want to kill Jesus? On July 13, she was surprised to find out that she had WON! She and her family are now enjoying her prize: a WEEK at Isla Grand Beach Resort in South Padre Island.
As part of her prize package, Ana received a fused-glass rendering of her art courtesy of Yoli Cantu of McAllen Stained Glass. Ana will also get to take three friends there for a fused glass workshop.
Ana is so happy and thankful. She stated that her only regret is that she won’t be able to win again. 🙂
