Brunner was re- ferring to the short essay Ms. Cisneros wrote. She said, "My home means a lot to me because it puts a roof over my head and gives me shelter. I am really glad to have a good home. It makes me feel lucky to have a house because a lot of people in the world don't have food, a roof over their head, or clothes on their backs. I'm really lucky to have a home." The art work was judged by USDA Rural Development staff for. its originality, and by the essay based on the contest's theme of "What my home means to me!" Six other student artists at- tending G.W. Stout Elementary and the Sixth Street Elementary were also honored for their par- ticipation in the poster contest. Each of these artists also re- ceived a certificate of apprecia- tion from Brunner. Those hon- ored included: Ajia Richard, Ayane E. Reyes, Bobble Jean Arsola, Emiliano Rodriguez, Isihia Campos and Michael Jaylynn Crist. The poster drawn by Ms. Cisneros was used throughout the month of June in USDA Rural Development's outreach on homeownership. The art work will also be displayed at the USDA Rural Development's housing administrator's office in Washington, D.C. Another copy will also be displayed at the USDA Rural Development's Service Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Both will be dis- played for the rest of the year.
