Eight students were announced as winners of the 24th annual Illustrate Your Favorite Caldecott Book contest at Harrells Christian Academy. Each year, the HCA Media Center collaborates with the Art Department to sponsor a contest for grades K-5 in honor of nineteenth century children’s book illustrator Randolph Caldecott.
