2018 T-Shirt Artist Claire Beckley

This year’s Art Contest winner is 10-year-old Elizabeth Smith of Sudbury, MA. Elizabeth has walked for the past several years with her family and her church youth group from St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sudbury. Elizabeth and her family love to take walks together, and the CROP Walk offers an annual opportunity for a beautiful family walk through Concord’s historic streets. Their dog often walks with them. Elizabeth’s family includes her parents, her sister and several pets. This past summer the family climbed mountains in Acadia National Park and camped on Cape Cod. In addition to these activities, Elizabeth also loves to read, write, and draw. She has had one of her poems published. Among this young writer’s favorite books are Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell, The Secret Garden by F.H. Burnettand My Side of the Mountain by Jean C. GeorgeElizabeth also plays the piano and the cello. And she plays tennis and enjoys “Math Club” at the Peter Noyes Elementary School, where she is in the fifth grade.

Elizabeth says she has long wanted to win the CROP Walk Art Contest and that she thought a lot about her design last fall. It shows a globe with a colorful ear of corn which Elizabeth says is the world’s most frequently planted vegetable. 

Elizabeth and her family and dog will be at the walk again this year. You can meet this talented young artist at the T-shirt table before the walk.
