Fifth-grader Alyssa Lee wins 1st place in Oak Brook Park District design contest
OAK BROOK — Alyssa Lee, a fifth-grade student at Brook Forest Elementary, took home first place in the Oak Brook Park District’s 2013 Camp and Aquatics Cover Design Contest.
Alyssa was born in Chicago, and currently lives in Oak Brook with her parents and sister. Alyssa enjoys reading, drawing, singing, swimming and skiing. She also plays piano and oboe, is learning Chinese and participates in Tae Kwon Do classes.
Alyssa's inspiration for her design came from all the activities she has seen take place at the park district. Her work is a mixed media piece that was completed using pencil, Sharpie marker, colored pencil and text printed from Microsoft Word.
Alyssa’s design was one of 16 submissions in a contest that the park district launched last year, with help of Butler School District 53, to promote creativity and art awareness to the youth of Oak Brook.
The Oak Brook Park District 2013 Summer Camp and Aquatic guide, featuring Alyssa’s cover design, will be mailed to Oak Brook residents in early March.
The submissions are all currently on display at the Family Recreation as well as the park district’s Facebook page, facebook.com/obparks.
