Toys come and go, but it seems that the art of coloring has always been an enjoyable pastime for many kids (and adults). The Craig County Department of Social Services has decided to bring out the talent in the kids of Craig County with a special showcase. They will be hosting a 4th of July Coloring Contest for the children within our community from June 6 through 17 of all ages.
The coloring pages will be available for pickup at Food Country in New Castle starting on June 6 until 5 p.m. on June 17, when the last pickup will be. Children will have the choice between three pages; however, only one may be submitted for the contest. Once the child has completed their coloring page it can be returned to Food Country, where it will be displayed until voting. Please ensure that your child’s first and last name and their age is on the page so they can get credit for their art. Parents are encouraged to have their children join in this fun event as all pictures will be displayed.
The local DSS Board will be voting on their top three favorites on June 23 at their monthly board meeting. Then, the winners will be printed in the New Castle Record. They will also be posted on the Craig County DSS Facebook page. Also, the top three will receive a prize for winning!
The Craig County DSS shared, “We look forward to seeing all of the beautiful coloring to come!”
