"We are very proud of the students who chose to enter their drawings," said Bridget Epperson with the Recreation Department. "We want to thank the students, teachers and office personnel that helped with this project. We couldn't have accomplished this event without you." Along with being the Christmas card for the Recreation Department and Development Board, Jazlynn also received a $25 Walmart gift certificate; her original drawing, framed; 10 copies of the card to give to whomever she wishes; and a blue ribbon. Judges for the contest include county employees, said Joye. They also chose four Honorable Mentions, which included Oak Hill Christian Academy third-grader Mattie Kelly; Laurence Manning Academy third-grader Lucy McCarron; and Manning Primary School third-graders Zalay Cruz Aaliyah Parker. Pictures of Honorable Mentions will be run later Thursday evening and Friday morning.
