Christina Best is the 2013 winner of the Rondy booster button contest. She is 11 years old and attends Chinook Elementary School in Anchorage. She heard about the competition from her art teacher.
Being born and raised in Alaska gives Christina a unique opportunity to see wildlife up close. Her mom says Christina spent two weeks perfecting her polar bear design for the button.
Christina lives with her parents and older sister. A dog, cat, and turtles keep the family company. As an animal lover, Christina can see herself going into marine biology or working with animals in some way when she’s older.
