    Didn't realize it until after I voted but there is a kid from Urbandale in there. (grade 8-9 age group)

    Lots of good stuff in there. Maybe I'm just butt-hurt that these kids can do way better then I ever could, but I am very skeptical that some(many) of those are from kids in k-3rd, 4th-6th...... I've seen professionals in graphic design that would struggle to match some of those. Some of them were better then anything Google itself has done.

    I thought the same thing. Some of those are really good.

    The descriptions also seem like they were written by someone older than some of those age groups. I could also just be butt hurt.

    There was definitely some parent 'involvement' in some/most of those younger groups.
