Thank you to everyone who entered our Best Of Coloring Contest. We received quite a few entries (none in blood) and what was most surprising is how many adults still love to color — they gave us more entries than the kids. We dug through our prize closet and came up with:
• $20 in Pizza Rita coupons!
• A ticket to the Shrine Circus!
• A pack of Tiffany Patterson Stickers!
The winner in the 0-4 age group is Scarlett Price, age 4. We loved her addition of eyelashes and Whiskers!
The Winner in the 5-10 age group is Declan, age 7. We loved how impressionistic his extra watercolor strokes are.
The winner in the 10-16 was Maddie Speare, age 11. We loved her rainbow background.
The Winner in the 17+ category was Noralene Harland, age 54. So much effort went into making an amazing piece it was a no-brainer for our staff.
And one more surprise category was the Artist's Fav, selected by Tiffany Patterson. "I've chosen 9-year-old Daegan — I love the addition of 'awsome' albeit misspelled which I fully can relate to. I also was quite impressed with the striped antlers...such creative vision!"
