Francis - Missouri had their coin design contest this past Spring and all my
students participated. The children were so excited to be part of a coin
Some of them had collected coins from other states that already had designed
their coins. We had some excellent drawings and it was very hard to narrow
them down to only one entry. We did not have a finalist but it was certainly
rewarding experience. My only criticism of the way Missouri ran theirs was
Adults were conpeting against all the kids - professional artists!. Which is
won our contest. I just felt they could have had a separate childrens
contest - but
then the governors wife never asked me. LOL. Have fun Roberta
