2 Read through the list of nominees at the bottom of these instructions, and choose carefully on who you think will win. You have to chose in each category. If you look at the most prominent categories, they are worth more points than others, so try to make those count because they can be game changers!

Katherine "Kae" McSpadden
Artist | Student | Film & Animation
United States
I was born on March 18th, in the small country of Luxembourg (It is between France, Germany, and Belgium), but I'm a US citizen because both of my parents are. After I finished 3rd grade, my family and I moved back to the US. Art has been a part of my family, my great-great grandfather was an artist and my father's cousin is an artist. Please friend me on facebook and follow me on Twitter, Tumblr, Vine, and Instagram as well!
