CANTON, Mass. (December 28, 2018) – Bank of Canton recently announced the winners of its 2018 Holiday Craft Contest, in which young artists between the ages of 3 and 14 submitted snowman sculptures made from non-perishable materials. The bank received 37 entries from around the Greater Boston area.

Randolph residents Stephen Onofrey (age 7) and Jaden Berivard (age 11) each won a $50 runner-up prize in their respective age group. Nine of the eleven winners were selected by the bank, while the other two were decided exclusively by the number of Likes their entries received on Facebook. The bank awarded a special $250 prize to the art department of Delphi Academy of Boston, in recognition of the outstanding effort made by the Milton school’s art teacher Elissa Heim and fourteen of her students.

Contestants utilized a broad array of materials and designs, including oven-fired clay, paper mâché, glass ornaments and stuffed socks. One spherical snow globe was constructed out of clear packing tape. 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 Disney’s Frozen at the bank’s 250-seat auditorium in Canton, as well as mitten tree collection drives to gather hats, gloves, mittens and scarves to benefit local charities.
