THE BUNNY TRAIL — Some holidays, like Easter, bring out the kid in all of us. Just the thought of all that candy can make even the most serious dieter think about ripping brightly colored paper off a chocolate egg.
Easter is a time to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, but we all know kids enjoy going on Easter Egg Hunts with their friends and family, getting baskets filled with green plastic straw and lots and lots of chocolate candy.
Here at The Easley Progress, we’re doing something different this year: a coloring contest that includes our sister papers in Union, Newberry and Pickens.
Locally, each newspaper staff will pick a first, second and third place winner from the entries received by the March 18 deadline. Each of those winners will receive an Easter basket provided by a local business.
Then it gets even better: The first place winner at each paper will then vie for the honor of being named the S.C. Spring Coloring Grand Champion and will be presented with a bicycle and helmet combo, courtesy of Upcountry Outdoors of Easley.
Children ages 4 to 10 can enter by coloring the drawing included in The Progress for the last two Wednesdays and getting it to us by 5 p.m. March 18. Parents are allowed to help the young artist fill out the entry slip but the coloring must be by the child using pencils, markers, crayons or any combination of the three.
Completed entries can dropped by our office at 714 S. Pendleton St., Suite D, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Entries must be on a page from The Easley Progress or The Pickens Sentinel to be in the contest.
The deadline will be here before you know it so get to coloring! Questions? Call our office at 864-855-0355.
