Thanks to Kevin Plough for sharing the news that the creator of the statewide-contest-winning art above – announced as “Burien 4th grader” Emily Cain – also happens to be West Seattle Hi-Yu‘s reigning Junior Queen.

From left, that’s Kevin – Emily’s teacher at Cedarhurst Elementary – with Emily, her mom Amanda Cain, and Secretary of State Kim Wyman. Kevin also happens to be a West Seattle resident, so he kindly pointed out the local connection, so we could share the news with you and congratulate Emily. As Wyman’s office explains here, you’ll see Emily’s work in the state Voters’ Pamphlet this fall, and the original will be displayed in the Lieutenant Governor’s office in Olympia.
