The City of Coronado’s Recreation & Golf Services annual Turkey Coloring Contest began on October 1 through November 1. Children could submit an entry for the coloring contest, sponsored by the Coronado Junior Woman's Club. This holiday tradition provides the opportunity for 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 their entry. The 2023 contest prizes were awarded by the Mayor and City Council at the beginning of the November 21 City Council meeting. All 152 entries are currently on display in the Coronado Community Center through December 4.
- The awards were divided into age groups: K-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-5th Graders
- Entries were from all schools in town
- Winners received Coronado Currency to purchase something special to serve at their families Thanksgiving Feast.
