Last week’s Tri-County News includes a section of Christmas greetings sponsored by local businesses. Each of the greeting ads is a drawing done by an elementary school student in either Kimball or Eden Valley-Watkins schools.
It was tough to select from all the wonderful drawings those that would be in last week’s paper. (We have a few more this week, too.) From those, we selected a first-place, two second-place, and 10 third-place winners. They are pictured with their prize letters and cash prizes.
“Thank you” to ALL who drew us Christmas or winter pictures for our Christmas greetings. You’re ALL winners in our book.
Kimball students whose drawings were selected for cash prizes were (back row, from left) Shekinah Elznic, Riley Albers, Jaden Degree, Austin Donnay, Evan Powell, and Randy Hendrickson; (front row) Andrew Hennen, Jocelyn Zoller, Jordyn Theis, Morgan Danelke, Ashley Beehler, Leah Schiefelbein, and Callie Klema.
