Lisa Jacobs, a 7th grader at SMS, won the grand prize award in a contest earlier this year called "Draw Your Own Graphic Novel". The contest was sponsored by best-selling young adult author Raina Telgemeier, who wrote Smile, Sisters and Ghosts. Lisa Jacobs illustrated her favorite scene from the book "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" as part of the Chronicles of Narnia (see attached) in graphic novel form, and because her entry was chosen as the top entry from across the US, she won a classroom Skype session with Ms. Telgemeier taking place later on this month, and the class wins a pizza party to celebrate as well as their own individual copies of her newest book, Ghosts. We surprised her with this news on Wednesday. January 4th.
