Gobble, gobble! It's that time of year again when the leaves change color, the nights get cooler, and visions of turkeys dance in our heads! Starting October 1st, children can submit an entry for the Recreation and Golf Services annual Turkey Coloring Contest, sponsored by the Coronado Junior Woman's Club. This holiday tradition gets local elementary school children in kindergarten through fifth grade to compose their colorful Thanksgiving masterpieces. Past designs submitted range from traditional autumn colors to pop culture icons, superhero fowls, and even holiday symbols. Crayons, markers, and colored pencils are the artists' tools used to create what they hope is a winning entry.
Contest prizes are awarded by the Mayor and City Council members at the November 21st City Council meeting. Entries for this contest can be submitted in "the contest drop box oven" located in the Community Center Lobby through November 1st.
Make sure to read the contest rules and print the 2023 Turkey Coloring Contest Form. For more information, call (619) 522-7342
