The work submitted by Roby Gilbert for print comic was actually done by Laura and Roby Gilbert. My husband said he corrected this error and a new award would be issued. Please rectify the error.
Thank-you.

(read the by-line for Ranger Rick, it reads Roby and Laura Gilbert)

Cartoonist NW has changed the error. The old award has been re-issued and it reads Roby and Laura Gilbert as the by-line states. My husband never contacted them to correct this error.
Thank-you.
