Can I keep it? #kidlitillustration

This was the art I did for the #NESCBWI17 conference Illustration assignment.

I mounted a photocopy of this on foam board as instructed for displaying there and I had no intention of lugging the copy home with me so I tossed it in the trash when the judging was done. Another attendee walked by and asked if she could take it. Of course I gave it to her. I may not have won the contest but I think mine was the only piece that is now adorning the wall of an elementary school in New England and that is even better, IMO!
