I tell the kids the writing is more important than the Mr. Stick art when they ask about my judging criteria. Here's a great example of good writing accompanied by a simple, small Mr. Stick presence.  THANKS, Jacqueline.  Check out my Mr. Stick stuff online: http://corbettharrison.com/Mr_Stick.html

6th grader Donovan wins one of my ten "Mr. Stick of the Year" notebook awards with this illustrated, on-going story he's been working on.

Since it didn't really use a stickman (or stick woman), I could only award 8th grader--Mimi--an 'honorable mention' this year for this sequel to her prize-winning Barbie-themed page she made as a sweet and much more innocent 6th grader: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/450852612665854241/  It's fascinating to me how their senses of humor become a bit racier as they mature.    I'll miss you next year, Mimi!  I truly will.

6th grader Amika writes really dark stories, which I'm fine with as long as they don't cross the line or make me have to send the notebook to the school counselor.  Here is an excerpt from a long story she's been working on (it's her rough draft so forgive her spelling).  She often leaves space to tape in an illustration, which I admire, and I use this sample to encourage others to do the same.

7th grader Ashley won an honorable mention in my "Stickman of the Year" writer's notebook contest I sponsor every year.  To enter, you have to have won one of my "Mr. Stick of the Week" awards I give out weekly to three or four students.  When you show students pages like this, many of them realize they could be (and SHOULD be) putting more effort into the ten minutes I give them to "sacred write" every class session. Feel free to show off any/all of the student samples I share at Pinterest.
