Emma Kraus

'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Peace is the holiday message that Emma Kraus, a fifth-grader at Paynter Elementary School, expressed in her award-winning artwork.

Kraus, 10, won the ninth annual Edgar Snyder & Associates “My Holiday Wish” coloring contest along with five others from Western Pennsylvania, beating out 700 other entries. Her artwork appeared on the firm's holiday card for 2012.

Kraus also received a $100 gift card.

This is the first time that Paynter Elementary School entered the annual coloring contest.

Paynter faculty and staff surprised Kraus with the news that she'd won the contest by announcing it via the building intercom in November. A panel of judges from the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and SXZ Design selected the winning artists earlier in the month.

Kraus' winning design featured the word “Peace” with holiday ornaments and mistletoe.
