Go KidLit Artists!! This makes 6 of us now that have won a portfolio showcase award, most after being in the Mentorship program for a year or two: Andrea Offerman (Grand Prize, SCBWI NY 2013), Juana Martinez-Neal (Grand Prize, SCBWI LA 2012), Eliza Wheeler (Grand Prize, SCBWI LA 2011), Juliana Brion (Honor Award, SCBWI LA 2011), John Deininger (Honor Award, SCBWI LA 2011), and Debbie Ohi (Honor Award, SCBWI LA 2010).

P.S. For anyone wondering, the mentors are not judges for the portfolio showcase awards.
