Derlega's design, titled "Family Dinner," was selected out of tens of thousands of submissions. 


"Every Sunday night is filled with chaos, laughter, and the smell of food in my household. The standing invitation goes to any friends and family in the area. As my life grows and changes, my wish for the next 25 years is that this tradition remains a constant."

As the national winner, she will receive a $55,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 technology package for her school.
