Congratulations to our September Coloring Contest Winners!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 7, 2017 at 2:58 PM

Summer sure is sweet! This month’s competitors sent us dozens of colorful bears roasting marshmallows over a campfire. Twelve-year-old Mackenzie gave her teddy the tie-dye treatment, topping off her entry with a golden crescent moon. Rylee, 6, embellished her masterpiece with shining silver bear eyes and a sparkling red fire. Five-year-old Max’s cute creature sports a button-up vest with lime-green pockets and a brilliant red, blue, orange and yellow blaze. Enjoy the start of a brand-new school year, kids, and be sure to send us your awesome artwork in September.

Congratulations to our September Writing Contest Winners!

Posted By on Thu, Sep 7, 2017 at 2:50 PM

In last month’s issue, we asked kids to write a poem or paragraph about their favorite sweet treat in the summertime. Below, find the winning entries. Eden and Emily each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington.

Eden Leckey, 6
Hinesburg

Slurp! It is cold on my tongue.
Crunch! It is crunchy in my teeth.
Drip! It is sticky on my hand.
Ouch! It hurts my brain.
Can you guess?
It is my favorite sweet treat —
A maple and black raspberry twist
cremee with rainbow sprinkles!


Emily Bandy, 9
Cambridge

Ice cream, frozen foods
smooth as a nickel,
None is as good as a
chocolate fudgsicle!
Sometimes, I want to go and nick a fudgsicle
so I can give it a lick!
As, now, like that,
like a candle with no wick,
too late, it’s gone and
you’re left with the stick.

Find the current writing prompt in the "Just for Kids" section of the September issue. The deadline is September 15.
