This year, as part of The Canowindra Phoenix’s annual Christmas in July window decorating competition, a colouring competition was introduced to encourage the children of Canowindra to be involved in the festivities.
Entries were printed in two editions of the Canowindra Phoenix as well as being available from our Facebook page and were available to all the children of Canowindra. The competition was separated in to two categories with a section for the under five year olds and an over five year old category with a great amount of colouring entries brought in for display in the Canowindra Phoenix office window during the month of July.
The competition was judged by Zoe and Harry Maynard, children of Canowindra Phoenix Publisher, Sarah Maynard. Zoe, aged 6, judged the older age group category and Harry, aged 4, judged the younger category. The winner in the under five year old category was Evie Daly and runner-up was Ada Carpenter. The winner in the over five year old category was Hannah Gordon and runner-up was Emily Thomas.
Thank you to all the children who entered in this year’s colouring in competition. The response was fantastic. The number of entries and involvement by all will guarantee that the competition will take place again next year. Thanks to Cabonne Council for their support in this year’s Christmas in July competitions by donating the prizes for our winners.
