Albion Student Wins Junior Scholastic ‘Find Mapman’ Contest

An Albion Middle School student has won a Wii and a $400 U.S. Savings Bond from Junior Scholastic magazine for her stellar artwork. Doyoun Park, a 15-year-old from Cottonwood Heights, won the grand prize in the magazine’s “Find Mapman” contest.  

The competition, which the magazine says drew about 9,000 entries, asked students to figure out a “mystery destination” and then draw a map of that location. Doyoun correctly surmised the mystery destination was Cambodia, and her map of the country drew praise.

“Doyoun’s map won the grand prize because it beautifully illustrates Cambodia’s countryside and temples,” wrote Junior Scholastic’s Jim McMahon in the May 14, 2012 edition. Twenty-five runners up received T-shirts.  Park also was honored at the school’s year-end awards assembly, said Principal Joanne Ackerman.

Park is Canyons District’s resident “poster child.”  This is the third major prize Park has won for her artwork. In 2009, Park’s drawing was selected as the top entrant in a contest held by the National Association for Pupil Transportation. Park’s artwork, which was chosen from a field of more than 200 entries, was used in a nationwide campaign to promote the bus safety week. A year earlier, Park won the National Missing Children’s Day poster contest.

Congratulations to Park and her teacher, Courtney Roberts, for winning the Junior Scholastic award.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. 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!
