The program was sponsored by the Carolinas Freedom Foundation. For taking home first place, Donald can choose to receive $1,000 in US Airways gift cards toward airline tickets to Washington, D.C., or a $1,000 U.S. savings bond. The Victory Christian art department will also receive a check for $250 to purchase art supplies.
