By Yvonne Mizrahi One day Jessica was walking down the street, when she saw a flyer hanging on a pole. Jessica went closer to see what it was for. It was for an art contest. Jessica got excited because she was great at art. She took the flyer home and showed it to her mom. Her mom said, “That sounds fun. We have lots of art supplies in the garage.” So, Jessica worked very hard day and night. Finally, the day of the contest was here. The judges came to look at all the projects while the contestants waited aside to present their projects. When it was Jessica’s turn, she did a nice presentation, but she heard people mumbling bad comments. She was discourages. She decided to go home and practice her techniques and take more art lessons.
