2021 Winner

My parents told me

How to shine brighter than a star


How to be better than you are


How to be as strong as an elephant


How to be regal and elegant


How to be more powerful than a god


How to have stronger bonds that titanium


How to know if the pie calls your name


How to never be the same


How to be louder than a rocket launch


How to make sure you get a good brunch


How to say hello to Mr. Sun


How to know the fun is never done
