Albion student wins national poster contest

{yoogallery src=[/images/stories/albion-bus/]}
Doyoun Park is the “poster child” of the Canyons School District.  Park, a seventh grader at Albion Middle School, this month won her second national poster contest.  

A poster the 13-year-old drew in just a few errant hours after school one day last year was selected as the top entrant in the contest held by the National Association for Pupil Transportation, which annually organizes the National School Bus Safety Week. Park’s artwork, which was chosen from a field of more than 200 entries, will be used in a nationwide campaign to promote the bus safety week, Oct. 18-222.  Some 90,000 posters bearing her artwork will be printed as part of the campaign.

Park, who in 2008 won the National Missing Children’s Day poster contest and was a top winner in the Canyons District logo-design contest, sketched a cartoon of a friendly, smiling school bus to illustrate the theme of the contest, “Cross in View, It’s the Right Thing to Do.”

“I got the idea of the ‘The Magic School Bus’ – I used to watch that when I was little,” she said of the her design’s concept.  “”I just got this idea that the bus would be alive.  I thought, ‘That’s a good idea.  Why don’t I try that?'”

Park, who enjoys playing tennis with her dad when she’s not studying or working on art projects, entered the contest last school while a student in Julie Overholt’s sixth-grade class at Quail Hollow Elementary.  In March, Park won the state contest sponsored by the Utah State Office of Education and the Utah Association of Pupil Transportation. As a state winner, Park received a check for $50 from UAPT.

Park’s poster was then submitted to the National Association for Pupil Transportation to be judged with against the other state winners.  Her national win was announced during the NAPT’s national conference in Louisville, Ky.  As a result, she received a $1,000 U.S. savings bond.

The Canyons School District’s Board of Education honored Park, the daughter of Kihwan Park and Kyoungmi Jo, who live in Sandy, at a recent school board meeting.

“Anytime I see her drawings, I am so surprised,” says her mother, Kyougmi Jo. “She has such interesting ideas.”

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
