CALUMET CITY | A Lincoln Elementary fifth-grader is one of six national grand prize winners in an art contest meant to promote healthy eating.

Pearl Westerlund's design will be featured on a 24-foot food delivery truck that delivers meals to the school. The contest sponsored by Preferred Meals started in 2012 to support healthy eating in a fun and imaginative way, according to a news release.

Preferred Meals provides school meals in Illinois, including at Lincoln Elementary. The contest was for fourth- through sixth-graders and artwork was judged on originality of design, theme message clarity and artistic merit by a committee.

Second-place winners will be featured on school tray liners during the 2014-15 school year and all entries are displayed on the Preferred Meals Facebook page. Winners are also featured on the company's website and newsletter.
