A Manara Academy 4th grader won her school's T-shirt designcompetition.
To win, the design had to include Buddy Bison! Their whole school went to a giant Dallas Fort Worth Earth Day Challenge at the DFW airport and everyone wore her T-shirt design!
Manara Academy Student Loves Traveling with Buddy Bison
Hello, I attend Manara Academy in Coppel, Texas. I took Buddy Bison to a lot of places: I took him to a park in Oklahoma and took pictures with ducks near a big river. Next, I took him to a place in Texas. It was a field of flowers and I took pictures there too! Then we went to a place with palm trees and flowers. Buddy decided to sit on a palm tree! I had a lot of fun with Buddy! He is a great travel companion.
