Some of El Dorado County’s finest young artists participated in this year’s inaugural Village Life Christmas Coloring contest, impressing the judges and letting their creativity shine.

Winners were tough to choose as Village Life received dozens of entries in three age categories. After much deliberation the awards went as follows:

Ages 6 and younger

  1. Mark Dagenais
  2. Carson Greenfield
  3. Tyson Ellis

Ages 7-9

  1. Sophia Voudouris
  2. Sienna Dietrich
  3. Nicole Uribe

Ages 10-12

  1. Giavanna Chopra
  2. Ashley Chow
  3. Avery Ellis

The contest entries were judged by Village Life Editor Noel Stack, Natalie Buerki with El Dorado Hills Town Center and Laura Newell with the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce. A reception for the winners was held at the California Welcome Center last week, where each winner was presented with a cash prize and a gift certificate from Cold Stone Creamery.

The winning works of art will be on display through the holidays at the El Dorado Hills Chamber of Commerce, 2085 Vine St. #105.

“We look forward to next year’s coloring contest and more great entries,” Stack said. “These children did outstanding work. I wish I could color as well as them.”
