The Fall Season officially began on Sept. 22 and with it comes the annual Turkey Coloring Contest. The City of Coronado with the Support of the Coronado Junior Women’s Club hosts this Autumnal contest each year to celebrate the artistic talent of children in Coronado.
The Turkey Coloring Contest is open to all kindergarten through fifth grade students who either live in Coronado or attend school in Coronado. Using crayons, markers or colored pencils, junior artist are encouraged to color the outlined turkey in the most creative way that they can!
Prizes will be awarded by the mayor and city council to the top entries in each division (K – first graders, second – third graders and fourth – fifth graders) at the Nov. 7 City Council Meeting. So that the winners can be recognized in time to pick up their Thanksgiving Prize, the contest will be held from Oct. 3-24, 2017. Children can bring their completed entries to the Coronado Community Center, 1845 Strand Way by Oct. 24 to be judged as a potential prize winner.
