It's time to give thanks for outstanding artwork.
Results are in for the La Cañada Valley Sun's annual Thanksgiving art contest. The contest is a La Cañada tradition more than 50 years old. Submissions for the contest came hot off the desks of fifth-grade classes across town. Students were asked to create and submit their best drawing or painting of America's first Thanksgiving meal.
Five different categories were created this year. First-, second- and third-place winners, and a few honorable mentions, were decided for general excellence, the best turkey, most patriotic, most unique and most humorous.
This year's overall winner of the general excellence category is 10-year old Prudence Sum of La Cañada Elementary. Prudence's drawing effectively captured the contest's theme with vibrant colors. See the outstanding efforts of the runners-up on the special wrap around our "B" section today.
