Creative coloring shines in Squire Halloween Coloring Contest

Kyle Ashbaugh

Jack O'Roukes

It was wonderful enjoying the dozens of pumpkins submitted by our younger readers for this year’s Put the Face on The Pumpkin Coloring Contest. With impressive creativity, lots of unusual decorating techniques and some really, really cool pumpkins, it was very difficult to make our decisions on the winners in each age category.

In the youngest category, up to age five, we tied in our judging and chose both the interesting pumpkin by Kyle Ashbaugh of Roguewood Elementary, (are those antlers?) and the colorful, glittery pumpkin submitted by Jack O’Rourke, 18 months, who will eventually be attending Valley View.

In our middle category, we couldn’t resist the three-D approach submitted by Claire Froumis, 9, of Crestwood Elementary. Her pumpkin included tiny black bats with glittery eyes “flying” around the pumpkin on black pipe cleaners—very creative!

Finally, in our oldest age category we could not resist this Ram-terrific pumpkin incorporating our own school mascot in the design created by Sarah Polkowski of Chandler Woods Charter Academy. Very wonderful work, we think Sarah might have a design career in her future. Our winners are invited to stop by the office and pick up their goodie bag with our appreciation.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their creative efforts with us!
