LearningRx Announces National “Picture Our President” Contest Winner
Kim Hanson, CEO
LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the largest 1-on-1 brain training company in the world, is celebrating national “Picture Our President” contest winner, 9-year-old Brenna Czycalla.
Brenna is enrolled in a one-on-one brain training program at the LearningRx center in Savage, Minnesota and designed the winning idea for adding Joseph Biden to LearningRx’s existing picture-graphic lineup of U.S. Presidents. Brenna suggested a ten-dollar bill biting the umpire’s hand, which connects Biden (“bite-ten”) to Trump (ump with “TR” on his chest).
Brenna, who enjoys drawing and is very artistic, showed her entry to her personal brain trainer at LearningRx Savage, Brad Olson. "She is very creative and artistic," said Olson. When she brought in her design to show Olson before her next training session, he told her "this is a winning idea. It was unique and unlike the other ideas I had seen."
For her winning submission, Brenna will receive $100 cash and LearningRx will also make a matching donation to Eastview Elementary School in Lakeville, Minnesota, where Brenna is a student.
A graphic illustrator created the final artwork, which will be part of LearningRx’s full Presidential mnemonics images. The contest is derived from one of the first activities every LearningRx student masters: the ability to recite the names of all 46 U.S. Presidents. The memory picture-graphic combines silly pictures and fun associations to help students “picture” what they want to remember—in the order they need to remember it.
To see the visualization procedure in action, watch LearningRx students run through the list of Presidents’ names forward, backward, while distracted, and even while multitasking here: https://studentshoutouts.com/presidents-day/
