Rising third grader Leyf was recently selected as one of three winners for the Stride National Art Competition, which encourages students in grades K-12 to submit original creative pieces of artwork. The story was also featured on 6 ABC Philadelphia.

Leyf's mixed media collage of an anglerfish earned him a $150 Amazon gift card and bragging rights as a top contender in this prestigious competition.
