Jack and Jill Cover

What: Jack and Jill magazine will present Armen Duran, 12, with the Jack and Jill first-place prize for his submission, “It is having fun with my family. We love the beach. We go to do kayaking and go swimming.” Armen is autistic and uses art to express himself and his ideas. He clearly has a unique talent, as he finished in second place for this same contest back in 2010. Jack and Jill will award Repetto Elementary School (Monterey Park, CA) with a $1,500 cash prize for the school’s art program during an event at the school on Thursday, May 16. Duran’s winning submission is featured on the cover of the May/June 2013 issue of Jack and Jill as well as on the website,

The Jack and Jill Cover Contest is an annual art contest designed to stimulate creativity and promote art programs in schools across the country. Children ages 7-12 were encouraged to submit entries fitting with the theme, “My Best Day Ever.”
