Well, a great time was had by all! Philip Morgan, Senior Illustration student, was awarded First Place in the 12th Annual Raab Associates Prize competition, and as a result, got to attend a fancy-schmancy dinner with a lot of other authors and illustrators. The event coordinates with the Connecticut Children's Book Fair right here on the UConn campus. It was swell! Get the story on the Raab Prize and check out Phil's entry here in the near future: Raab Prize site.

And a BIG shout-out to Susan Raab, UConn alum, sponsor of the competition that bears her name, and all-around fab gal! Also, thanks goes to Jane Yolen, internationally known writer, who donated her poem for our use, as well as Terri Goldich, Curator, who is the glue who holds the Dodd Research Center, and this competition, together!
