Palmetto Luna announces winners for COLORES Children's Drawing Contest

COLORES was organized by Palmetto & Luna, a non-profit organization with the mission to foster an understanding of the Hispanic culture by promoting artistic creation and generating spaces of cultural expression for the community in the state. COLORES Children’s Drawing Contest 2011 received 285 entries from Latino Children from 37 different cities across the state. SC Latino children under 12 years old were invited to submit a drawing, sketch or painting which depicted their favorite story, whether it is a fairy tale, a princess story, a folk tale, a famous story, a family anecdote or a bedtime story. The contest offered prizes to the top three drawings in two categories: under 8 years old, and 8-12 years.
