The Disney Crew here in Kelowna were hard at work last night selecting the US and Canadian art and writing winners. They sure must have had a tough time. The art and writing entries have been absolutely amazing. The final ones chosen are very deserving indeed! A Big Huge Get To Know Hug goes out to Disney for helping us decide who the winners should be. :) Thank you!
