Christmas is right around the corner and there is no better way to get the kids involved than letting them show their Christmas creativity in this year's annual Christmas Coloring Contest sponsored by the Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council.

Coloring sheets have been passed out to students at Stephenville ISD's Central, Hook and Chamberlin elementary schools to compete in the contest.

The contest will have three winners from each division. The divisions are separated by grade. Division one will consist of pre- and kindergarten students, division two will be first and second grade and division three will include third and fourth grade students. First place winners in each division will receive gift certificates from CiCi's pizza.

The contest will be judged by members of the Stephenville Senior Citizens Center and the winners will be announced at Holly Jolly Christmas on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

The deadline for the coloring sheets is Friday, Dec. 6, and entries are to be turned in to the Cross Timbers Fine Arts Council located at 204 River North Blvd. or the CTFAC box at your school.
