Ashley, age 15 
Shoreline, WA 

Ashley is one of the winners of the Kaiser Permanente Kids’ Cheer Sign Art Contest. Six outstanding entries were selected as winners by a group of Team Washington athletes, their parents, and Special Olympics Washington staff members. We commend all the artists for their fun, inspirational, inclusive creations — and for their support of the athletes!

2018 Special Olympics USA Games official health partner, Kaiser Permanente, proudly supported the Kid’s Cheer Sign Art Contest - an event that provided space for Washington adolescent artists to share their encouragement of this year’s competing athletes.

Over 100 artists entered the contest, and six winning submissions were selected to be used as official signage during the Cheer Line for the Parade of Athletes.

Shoreline native Ashley, age 15, reigned supreme! Her winning submission caught the eyes and hearts of the contest judges, including athletes from Special Olympics Team Washington.

Ashley’s involvement in the contest was fueled by her dedicated support of this year’s athletes.

“When making this cheer sign, I thought about what would I want to hear when I would need some words of support,” she said. “The biggest inspiration in this project is probably the world because we are all equal and this Special Olympic games should be no different from the Official one we see on TV. 
"I hope this poster cannot just be a simple cheer sign but support all the amazing athletes and help them reach their goals.”
