    Commenting on her selection as a Zankel Scholar, Ms. Long said: “I'm honored (and still shocked) that I won the award and although the scholarship and recognition mean a lot - the part I appreciate the most is that all of the artists and judges involved have their heart in this. This year's panel - as I'm sure is standard - was extremely inspirational and encouraging and I think it's absolutely great that a group like this exists to support young illustrators as we prepare to begin our professional career. The two-day whirlwind of a trip is one I'll not soon forget and I'm more excited than ever for what will be next for me.”
