We’re very happy to announce the winners of our 2009 school drawing contest. All kindergarten, first, and second grade students in Knox, Blount, Jefferson, and Sevier counties were invited to submit drawings of their favorite Christmas images.
A grand prize winner from each county has won a $250 check for the art department of his or her school; and a $25 gift certificate from the store, an autographed Singing Santa CD, and a free photo with Santa.
We also selected a best-in-school winner from each campus, who receives an autographed Singing Santa CD and a free photo with Santa.
