Shown are just a few of the coloring contest entries received for the annual holiday contest hosted for The Oakdale Leader, The Escalon Times and The Riverbank News. First place in the 5- to-7 age group went to Anna, 5, with 11-year-old Katelyn taking top honors in the 8- to 11-year-old category. Each of the first place winners received a gift basket with a variety of items and an Honorable Mention gift was presented to Myley, 11, who included a letter with her entry encouraging the judges to be safe and wash their hands.
