Strawberry Art Contest

2011 NC Strawberry Association's Kid's Art Contest:

Draw or paint a picture inspired by strawberries or your visit to a strawberry farm.
You can draw anything you want as long as it relates to strawberries or a strawberry farm. We especially appreciate pictures that show you have looked closely at strawberries or strawberry plants or visited a farm. We value creativity, imagination, design and composition, and good observation.
