How to Train Your Dragon Competition Winners

First Place:

Aisling from Corpus Christi National School, Dublin!

Aisling’s Peackeeper Dragon really impressed us. Despite being incredibly fearsome (Fear Factor 10), they choose to stay neutral during the dragon wars and live deep underground near the Earth’s core. We loved the detail in Aisling’s drawing and how colourful the Peacekeeper Dragon is.

Aisling’s prize, as well as art supplies and a How To Train Your Dragon goody bag, was for author of How To Train Your Dragon, Cressida Cowell, to draw a picture of the winning design. You can see Cressida’s amazing drawing below.
