826 Day Coloring Contest!
Tear down summer boredom! Color in this action shot of the robot lioness Firelilly and her hungry robocub Leontronico, who are prowling the jungle for robot fish! This illustration by artist Manny Silva (who will be drawing at our 826 Quarterly release party on August 26) is taken from “Firelilly & Leonotronico Outsmart the Queen Shark,” a book produced by Guadalupe Elementary School students in 2010 during a field trip to 826.
Every year, 826 Valencia hosts dozens of field trips, where students as a class craft original stories. At the end of every field trip, students take their story (published in a bound book) home, complete with illustrations and their own individual endings.
Help Firelilly and Leonotronico come to life with color!
The most original and creative coloring pages will be posted on 826 Valencia’s tumblr page and the most eye-catching submission will win a fabulous copy of the most recent Writing and Publishing Apprentices workshop journal and the new 826 Quarterly!
Winners will be announced on 826 Day (August 26)!
Please send in your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Robocats in Color” and include your name, age, and where you’re from!
