The 8-year-old Aurora Elementary second grader is one of five national finalists in the Eighth Annual Operation Caring Classroom Coloring Contest put on by the Armed Forces Foundation. The other finalists are from Fredericksburg, Va., and El Paso, Texas.


“(Being a finalist) makes me very happy,” Duerr said. “You get a t-shirt with your picture on it and a bike if you win.”
