The Best Part of Winter in Nature Is…

Announcing the winners of our first annual Holiday Card Drawing Contest!

Congratulations to all of our first annual Holiday Card Drawing Contest winners!

Blandford Nature Center’s held its very first Holiday Card Drawing Contest for creative kids ages 14 and under. The theme of this year’s contest was “The Best Part of Winter in Nature is…” and the art was judged by overall and specific age groups on artistic quality and creative interpretation of the theme.

We had a great response and received such extraordinarily creative art from all three age groups that the decision was very difficult. We appreciate all of those who participated and hope to see your art again in next year’s contest! Here are this year’s winners, click on each image to enlarge the art.
