Ten-year-old Hailey Henry won the annual Black History Month Art Contest sponsored by UScellular and Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson City.
"I didn't think I was going to win. I'm not really an artist," Hailey said.
Hailey's piece, featuring Tarika Bennett -- the CEO of Girls Who Code -- was displayed with nine other finalists during February.
Finalists had created renditions of Leland Devon Melvin (an engineer and NASA astronaut), Vivien Thomas (a laboratory supervisor who developed a procedure to treat cyanotic heart disease, also known as blue baby syndrome), and Mae Carol Jemison (an engineer, physician and NASA astronaut).
Hailey said she'd like to go on a shopping spree using the money. She wanted to buy clothing and shoes.
Her mother was really going to be surprised, she added.
Each February, the organizations encourage club members to create original artwork representing Black icons in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Ten finalists' pieces were displayed online and at a local store, 1922 Missouri Blvd., during the month. Viewers were encouraged to go online and vote early and often for their favorite works.
Hailey received $250 for the first-place piece of art.
Raeden Smith received the second-place prize, $150, for a drawing of Jemison.
Third place and $100 went to Layla Andrews for a drawing of Melvin.
