“Honorable Mention: Technical Skill” was awarded to eight-year-old Quincy resident Michela McLaughlin.
CANTON, Mass. (December 30, 2016) – Bank of Canton recently announced the winners of its 2016 holiday coloring/drawing contest. The contest, which was promoted in local papers, bank branches, and on Facebook, received 64 total entries from children in Quincy, Canton and across the South Shore. Quincy resident Michela McLaughlin (age 8) received one of two honorable mentions bestowed by the bank, for technical skill in her artwork.
Winners were selected by the bank’s customers, who cast their ballots at the bank’s branch locations, and also by the bank’s Facebook followers, who could “Like” the individual pictures that were uploaded to the bank’s Facebook page. The picture galleries reached over 5,800 Facebook users who provided the 600-plus Likes that largely determined the contest winners.
Cash prizes of $200 (first place), $100 (second place) and $50 (third place) were awarded in each of three age brackets, for a total prize pool of $1,050. All entries can be viewed on Bank of Canton’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/thebankofcanton.
The drawing contest was part of Bank of Canton’s annual holiday promotion, which also included a free public showing of The Muppet Christmas Carol movie at the bank’s 250-seat Canton auditorium and a “Mitten Tree” collection drive that benefitted local charities including Quincy’s Interfaith Social Services.
