Sidewalk Chalk Contest

A sidewalk chalk contest sponsored by SFES inspired creativity and community. Sunny skies set the backdrop for our first-ever contest on May 19, 2012. Works of art filled various McAlister parking lot spots, creating swirls of color and creativity in SFES’ new event aimed at broadening awareness in the community.

“We had a great day for the first and hopefully annual sidewalk chalk contest,” said organizer Lori Sych. “All 17 participants seemed to all have a great time creating wonderful works of art.”

There were two winners in the grades K-2 division: Elisabeth Snell and Annika Gustafson. Each received $25 gift cards to stores in the area. There was one winner in the grades 3-5 division: Kailyn Stanio. She received a $25 gift certificate also. Two winners were announced in the Adult division: Cheryl Gustafson and Laura Coates. They each received $50 gift cards to Michaels.

Judges were local artists Rick Stromoski, Cindy Zien and Peggy McKinnon.
