Sept. 29, 2011 - PRLog -- Eleven-year-old Vickery Creek Middle School student, Sarah Voskamp, from Cumming, Georgia is an author, an “A” student, an entrepreneur, and a volunteer, which is why her mother Kim entered her in the American Eagle 77Kids “Tell Us Why Your Kid Rocks” contest. The 77kids panel apparently agrees with Kim that Sarah rocks because she is now one of the top 30 finalists from all across the U.S., and the only finalist from Georgia.

The winner of the contest will receive a $10,000 scholarship, $2,000 for their PTA, and a $250 77kids gift card. And, nine runners up will win $1,000 for their school or PTA and a $50 77kids gift card.

Now that the thirty top contestants from around the country have been chosen, the contest has been opened to voting from the general public at www.77kids.com/ptacontest where people from all over the country can cast a vote for one essay a day until October 4th. Winners will be announced on October 12th.

Sarah wrote her first book, Filly Girls when she was nine, had it accepted and published by BQB Publishing in 2010 and has sold over 2,000 of the books over the last year as she has visited schools in Georgia, Florida, and Canada inspiring kids of all ages with her slogan, “You Don’t Have to be Big to Do Big Things.”
