Cathelene Thomas Elementary student Lane Hargrave was one many students across the nation who designed an alien for a contest by Savaha USA for its clothing line.

He is one of 10 however who won the contest to get it produced into fabric.

Julia Scott, art teacher at CTE said she let students who had completed their work for the day design an alien, which she would submit into the contest.

“Svaha USA announced on their Facebook site – that they posted on Jan. 3 – ‘We are looking for your drawing of an alien for out alien themed dress. We will pick the best ten and put them on a dress. Kids can participate too. Send us the design in a white background. Just the shape of the alien, colored in. Please take a clear picture of your design and post in comments. Deadline is 15th of Jan’,” she said. “I saw this on Jan. 8 or 9 and instantly thought that this would be something fun for the kids to do once their primary art lesson was complete.”

Hargrave said he just drew the alien because he liked drawing. “I just did it like he was jumping around like that. I didn’t use any pictures or anything on my Chromebook he just came out of my head,” he said. “The class ended before I was able to color him in.”

The alien is green on the fabric.
