AFE celebrates Jaycee T., winner of the 2019 Cirque Dreams Costume Design Contest, and her colorful creation that was featured throughout the show’s tour in Japan.

“We were so honored to have Jaycee’s design picked as the costume winner,” shared Jody Wynans, U.S. Air Force Lt. Colonel. “A lot of kids entered into the drawing so we were just really honored to have her come from [Misawa AB] and actually have Cirque Dreams showcase the talent of our youth.”

When asked about the experience, mother Ashley Thompson said, “I can remember the picture, I still have [the design] on my desk at work. And seeing it, you can really compare the two, it really was her drawing. Which is awesome.”
