This drawing by Douglas Statz from Manz Elementary School won first place in the 2009 Summer Institute Design-a-Cover Drawing Contest.

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension has announced the winners of the third annual Summer Institute Design-a-Cover Drawing Contest.

The winner of the Design-a-Cover Drawing Contest 2009 is Douglas Statz, a fourth grade student at Manz Elementary School in Eau Claire.

"What inspired me to draw an owl is first, I love the outdoors," Statz said. "Second, my favorite animal is an owl. My dream is to see an owl in the wild. I drew me looking at an owl because when I go camping I like to look at wildlife."

Other contest winners include:

  • Second place, Devany Rindy, grade 3 at Robbins Elementary, Eau Claire
  • Third place, Hunter Martin, grade 4 at Granton Elementary, Granton
  • Honorable mention, Alexandra Meade, grade 2 at Robbins Elementary
  • Honorable mention, Caleb Johnson, grade 2 at Robbins Elementary

Each winner received a gift certificate to be used toward the 2009 summer youth class of his or her choice.

Sixty area students entered the contest. The winning drawings appear on the cover and throughout the brochure of the UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education Summer Youth Programs brochure, viewable online.
