Azalea Festival organizers announced the winner of a student art contest Thursday. Her work will be featured on souvenirs at the upcoming festival.

Fourth grader, Katie Girolami is from Cape Fear Academy. She used different colored Sharpies to draw a picture of the festival princess sitting daintily on an azalea.

“I’m really glad that I won, and I didn’t think I would win. I’m really glad and excited,” said Girolami.

Katie won circus tickets, a ride in the Azalea Festival Parade with a mystery celebrity, the chance to meet Governor Bev Perdue and a $50 gift certificate.

Her artwork will be on mugs, t-shirts and other festival souvenirs, as well as the cover of Wilmington Parent Magazine’s March issue.
