Runner-up: Mason Butler, St. Paul Elementary, 3rd Grade
We are thrilled to announce
the winners of the 2012 "Quit the Littering!"
Coloring Calendar Contest!
The contest, which was open to all elementary-age children in Boone County, asks the youngest among us to use their creativity in spreading the message that they are sick of litter. We received 345 entries from New Haven Elementary, Walton-Verona Elementary, Immaculate Heart of Mary, A.M. Yealey Elementary, Mann Elementary, Goodridge Elementary, Erpenbeck Elementary, Stephens Elementary, North Point Elementary, Longbranch Elementary, Kelley Elementary, Collins Elementary, Ockerman Elementary and Burlington Elementary as well as from home-schooled students. The entries were amazing and we'd like to sincerely thank all school principals, teachers, and parents for making it so awesome!
All of the winners will be recognized at the Fiscal Court meeting on December 20, 2011.
For the contest, students were given a choice of prompts and entries from each grade were chosen as winners. Grand Prize winners will have their artwork featured in a 2012 calendar that will be distributed throughout Boone County. Plus, they get award certificates, goodie bags and gift cards.
