Congratulations to the 2012 Traits Writing Contest Winner, Santy Hernandez! Hailing from San Rafael, California, Santy is not only an avid reader but also a basketball and karate enthusiast. A third grader at San Pedro Elementary school, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, as well as her parrot, cat and dog. Watch Santy's fable "How Parrot Spoke" come to life in this special animated short, where the birds of a lush forest teach us lessons of patience and humility.
