11-Year-Old Wins $1K for Ketchup Creation

Heard of the ketchup packet that's worth $1,000?
Inflation has nothing to do with it.
An 11-year-old from Flushing, Queens has won the fifth grade category of a national "Ketchup Creativity'' contest. The 12 winning designs will appear on 200 million ketchup packages.
Melissa Rueda portrayed a ketchup bottle as a rock star. It's surrounded by french fries, which represent fans.
Melissa plans to save most of her prize money for college -- but says she also might buy a little something for her parents.
