Kason Hodges, an 11-year-old sixth grader at Manatee Elementary School, was chosen as the top model in the Viera Voice Child Model Contest.
“I chose Kason because he came across on camera as a genuine, caring young man who is confident yet humble and funny as well,” said contest judge Eloise Evans, a theater teacher at Viera High School. “As a high school teacher, I love students who are humorous, well-spoken and intentional when being interviewed.”
Kason said he believes that being a good friend is being loyal and trustworthy. When asked what he is thankful for? “I am thankful that I have a loving family and I have a roof above my head.”
