SnowFest! a truly colorful event

Sierra SunMonnika Mattson won the Sierra Sun SnowFest! coloring contest in the 7 to 12-year-old age group. The judges liked the creative use of coloring in the clouds and castle bricks, and were especially impressed by the addition of three skiers, making the image so totally Tahoe Truckee.

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; SnowFest! brings an almost Mardi Gras atmosphere to North Lake Tahoe the first week of March, with parades, a Queen coronation, contests, parties, a polar bear plunge and more. This year, the Sierra Sun sponsored a coloring contest in the special SnowFest! publication, with most entries dropped off at the Tahoe City office in the Cobblestone Center.

Children ages 3 to 12-years-old put crayon to paper, transforming a black and white winged dragon perched upon a castle into a delightful menagerie of images.

A panel of judges from the Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza newspapers, with much appreciation for the budding artists’ work, decided on a winner for two categories: ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.

Chloe, age 5, won first place for ages 3-6 and Monnika Mattson, age 7, first place for ages 7-12. Both winners will receive a gift certificate for Geared for Games in the Boatworks Mall, Tahoe City.

The Sun thanks all participants and congratulates the talented winners.
