CANTON, Mass.

The bank received 52 total entries from around the Greater Boston area.

Randolph’s Gwyneth Cassellius (age 7) and brother Felix (age 10) each won a $50 runner-up prize in their respective age groups, while older brother Griffin Cassellius (age 12) won the $200 grand prize. Six-year-old Arya Ransom, also of Randolph, won a $50 runner-up prize.

Another set of siblings, Abigail and Christian O’Connell of Stoughton (ages 9 and 7, respectively), won $50 runner-up prizes as well.

In all, the bank awarded two $200 grand prizes, two $100 Facebook prizes (determined exclusively by the number of Likes their entries received on Facebook), and eight $50 runner-up prizes. Other winners hailed from Canton, Weymouth, Braintree, Roslindale, Hanson and Pembroke.

Submissions were made from fabric, clay, construction paper, sponges, paint, feathers, beads and magic marker. All entries can be viewed on the bank’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/thebankofcanton/.

The craft contest was part of Bank of Canton’s holiday promotion, which also included a free public showing of The Grinch at the bank’s 250-seat auditorium in Canton, and a mitten tree collection drive to gather winter clothing accessories to benefit Randolph’s Friendly Food Pantry and other local charities.
