Ten-year-old Victoria Owens of Girard is the winner of The Vindicator’s 2014 American Girl Doll Essay Contest, which we conducted in conjunction with the upcoming American Girl Fashion Show presented by Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.

Victoria’s essay was one of the 161 we received this year — the best response to this contest we’ve ever had.

The 8- to 12-year-old participants were given the task of writing an essay in 100 words or fewer about a special talent they have. That theme was in keeping with the story that accompanies American Girl Doll’s 2014 Girl of the Year doll, Isabelle Palmer. She was this year’s contest prize.

Each doll in American Girl’s line comes with a book telling a story of how she successfully dealt with a challenge in her life. Isabelle is described as a young girl who is excited after enrolling in a dance class but soon realizes how talented the other girls in the class are. While struggling to keep up with them, Isabelle discovers a unique talent to truly call her own.

ABOUT OUR WINNER

Victoria lives in Girard with her mother, Megan, and sister, Addison.

She is an A-B student at Girard Intermediate School.

Her interests are basketball, softball and cheerleading. She also has written sports editorials for the school newspaper.
