This year, every single class from Sprucecourt Public School entered the competition, in total 12 classes and ~240 kids, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8.
After much deliberation , our judges selected four winners and 12 honourable mentions. All 16 will receive a CRA ribbon. Early next year the each of the winners’ classes will get a treat from the CRA too!
The winners, in alphabetical order are:
- Aisha, a kindergarten student
- Athiran, a grade 2 student
- Noha, a grade 5 student
- Nusaybah, a grade 8 student
All the winning artwork has been framed and is on display over the holidays at Epicure on Parliament Street.
Many thanks to CRA Member Lindsay Matheson, and CRA Board Member Lise Flynn for managing this years competition. And of course to our three invaluable judges, Betty White, Cynthia Eldridge and Celia Fankhauser, for working so diligently to select the winners.

Each of the winning entries has been made into holiday cards, which will be printed and distributed to member households within the CRA boundary (Gerrard, Parliament, St. James Cemetery and the Don River).
