Fort Wayne High School Student Wins Multiple Awards for His Cartooning and Illustration
Peter Manges, a student at R. Nelson Snider High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana, recently brought home multiple awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association's annual awards competition. Mr. Manges won first-place awards for art/illustration, cartoon portfolio of work, and comic/cartoons. He also picked up a second place award for illustration portfolio of work. Added to those awards, Mr. Manges won first place in the National Scholastic Press Association's cartooning contest and an award of excellence for column/commentary in the Ball State University High School Journalism Contest. Although he is still in school, you can't call Peter Manges an up-and-coming cartoonist. He's actually an already-here cartoonist. You can check out his work on his website (link below).
