colourful competition

It was delightful to be able join Michael Alexander, President of the Belgrave Trader’s Association, to present 2 local children with prizes for ‘best colouring in’ as part of the Trader’s Easter Colouring Competition.

Pictured left to right: Charmaine Jeffery – Manager, Belgrave Community Bendigo Bank, Emily, Michael Alexander – President, Belgrave Trader’s Association, Jayson and Cr Samantha Dunn. Emily took her picture to another level by adding real whiskers and a fluffy tummy to her Easter Bunny, while Jayson’s picture was so skilfully coloured for someone so young. They both did a great job, as did all the children who entered the competition.

Competition was fierce with hundreds of children across the region entering with all manner of Easter Bunnies, including ninja bunnies, rainbow bunnies, spotted bunnies and stripey bunnies. Charmaine Jeffery, Manager of the Belgrave Community Bendigo Bank, and me were tasked with the job of judging the plethora of entries pasted in shop windows throughout Belgrave.

Jayson, a 4 year old from Selby Pre School, took out the under 5 prize, whilst Emily, an 8 year old from St Thomas Mores Primary, took out the over 5 prize.

The children were delighted to be chosen winners of the competition and readily accepted their prizes with proud parents looking on.
