When I picked Morgan up from school a couple weeks ago, she was carrying a manila envelope and had a huge smile on her face. She had won a coloring contest! One third grader in each class was a winner and received a $10 gift card to Pizza Hut along with a personal pan pizza.
We made a last-minute decision to go to Pizza Hut that night and celebrate the win as well as see her winning coloring that was on display there. They just happened to place as at the table where her picture was. :-)
The contest was sponsored by the Farm Bureau, so each of the coloring pages was a farm scene. Morgan's happened to be chickens! I thought it was quite fitting with all the chickens we have running around here! :-)
Because of her win, she was in the school newsletter. (The picture was stretched a bit...her face isn't really that wide...)
And she was also in a couple of the local newspapers!
I think being in the newspaper was just as exciting as the actual win for her! :-)
