Mike Roberts agreed.

"It would be nice if everybody had a stronger emphasis on the artistic side," he said. "I think it helps, in a complementary way, develop other natural things we can think about like math and science."   

Ashley Roberts, Mike’s 9-year-old daughter, said she "felt really cool" upon learning her abstract rendition of palm trees would appear on the event poster. 

"She spends a lot of her time drawing, finding things to draw and a lot of time with music," Mike said. "We're very proud of her for winning."
