Colouring Competition winners

Written by Carolyn on December 23rd, 2011.      2 comments

This is our last blog post for 2011 - like the rest of New Zealand, we're off on holiday and will be back on 9th January.  This week we would like to announce the winners of the competitions we have been running.   

We recently ran a colouring competition and we were amazed to see the quality (and quantity) of the entries sent in.  We had a total of 260 entries over all the age groups and we could see how much effort the children had put into their artwork.  It was extremely difficult choosing the winners from amongst all the beautiful entries! 

 

Winner (2-4 year olds)

CC 2-4yrssm

The winner of the 2-4 year old age group is Briar from Picton, who is 4 years old.  We love the bright colours that Briar has used.  Congratulations, Briar!!

 

 

Winner (5-7 year olds)

CC 5-7yrssm
The winner of the 5-7 year old age group is Hui Qi Sheak from Upper Moutere who is 7 years old.  We love the pink gardening tools and the pretty colours.  Congratulations!

 

Winner (8-10 year olds)

CC 8-10yrssm
The winner of the 8-10 year old age group is Amelia (aged 9) from Whitianga.   Amelia has put a huge amount of effort into each blade of grass and we love the bright sun in the clear blue sky.  Congratulations Amelia!

 

Winner (11-14 year olds)

CC 11-14yrssm

The winner of the 11-14 year old age group is Margaret from Dunedin, who is 13 years old.  Margaret's entry is just beautiful - she has added texture and colour to the background and the whole picture really pops.  Congratulations, Margaret - we love it!
 

Thank you!

It was a real challenge picking just one winner for each age group, with so many really gorgeous entries so we would like to thank all the children who entered - your work is beautiful and we so enjoyed seeing it!  Thank you also to the families and school teachers who helped the children organise and send in their entries - we appreciate the time you spent doing this!

Each of our winners received a certificate, our Children's Easy Peasy Annuals flower selection and our Children's Easy Peasy Vegetables selection.  We hope the winners have a lovely time sowing their seeds and watching them grow!!
 

Random Draw Winner

In addition, we randomly drew one colouring competition entry to receive a $50 Kings Seeds voucher and a copy of our catalogue.  The Random Draw winner was Markus Thomasen from Taupiri!  Congratulations, Markus!
 

What is the Cat's Name?

We also offerred a bonus prize for guessing the cat's name.  Well, despite some very inventive guessing, no-one guessed the correct name - his name was Fergus.  However, we have chosen a winner for the best guess.  Louie and Isla from Kamo thought his name might be Catnip.  What a cool name!  Louie and Isla will be receiving some packets of seeds - congratulations to them both!
 

Grocery Voucher Winner

We have one final winner to announce.   The winner of the $200 grocery voucher prize is Daphne Keller from Tauranga.  This prize was randomly drawn from all orders received up until 20th December.  Congratulations, Daphne!!

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.  Our Kings Seeds office will be closed from now until 9th January.  You are very welcome to continue to place orders for seed online over the Christmas break and we will process them for you as soon as we return on 9th January.   
 
 

Have a lovely Christmas, everyone!
