And the winner is...

CANVAS is very pleased to announce that Jessica Luciano Olmedo has won the latest Romeo Forbes Children's Story Writing Competition for her story, "Mga Munting Patak ng Ulan." She edged out two other finalists, Michaela Sarah De Leon ("The Three Marias") and Raymond Falgui ("Which National Hero Are You?").

These three amazing stories were inspired by Alee Garibay's untitled contest piece. Thank you to our judges, Town and Country Editor-in-Chief Yvette Fernandez and artist and designer Liza Flores. CANVAS Executive Director Gigo Alampay served as the third judge.

Congratulations to Jessica! Congratulations too to Michaela and Raymond, and thank you to all the other writers who participated!

We look forward to bringing this new book to life next year.
Meanwhile, the next Romeo Forbes Children's Story Writing Competition, featuring a new contest piece by Rommel Joson, is just around the corner! Malapit na! Abangan!
