It’s common knowledge that no two snowflakes are alike. Young artists from the region proved that truth once again.
The judges from The Spokesman-Review were impressed by the diversity and beauty of the snowflakes submitted for the newspaper’s new winter coloring contest.
Among the 4 and younger crowd, Victoria Brady, 4, of Spokane, won accolades for her sweet princess design that looked like cotton candy. Judges thought Steven LaMunyon’s snowflake was a cut above, with its green background and great touch of glitter. Steven is 4 and lives in Spokane. Christmas colors and confetti drew judges to the snowflake by Lily Brown, 4, also of Spokane.
In the 5-to-8 category, Lilah Lamb, 7, of Hauser, was a favorite with judges for her layered design, incorporating mesh, markers, words and lots of color. Judges liked the textures, colors and mixed media used by Dylan Gagnon, 7, of Priest Lake, on his snowflake. And, judges appreciated the intricate glitter work by Rayna Adelman, 7, of Spokane.
Among the artists in the 9-to-12 age group, Divine Maple, 11, of Chattaroy, wowed judges with her intricate black-and-white design. Peyton Hoppe, 9, of Spokane Valley, celebrated children around the world. And Mika Cornell, 12, of Cheney, grabbed attention by thinking outside the box, errr flake, and turning the design into an adorable deer.
The winners each received a Mobius gift certificate, and as many entries as will fit are displayed at Mobius Children’s Museum in River Park Square.
