Once again our annual coloring contest has come to a close and we have picked the winners! The participation this year was the best we’ve ever seen, and the quality of the entries made the judges’ job very difficult. We’d first like to extend a big thanks to all of the young artists that entered: we really appreciate your creative efforts!
The First Place Winner is Ibet Vargas of Wilson Middle School, who wins a $20 gift certificate at Encore Books. Ibet was very excited to learn that she won, and says er favorite book is DIary of a Wimpy Kid. Her design, which features an underwater motif and the phrase “Reading is cool,” will be made into a new bookmark available soon at Encore Books. This will be the 5th in a series of bookmarks made from the artwork submitted to our coloring contests.
The three runners-up each receive $10 Trade Credit:
Kayle Olney (Wilson Middle School), Briana C. (Wilson Middle School), and Emily Winmill (Naches Valley Middle School).
Congratulations to the winners! Thier artwork, as well as some of the other entries, is on display at Encore Books throughout the month of April.
