18 | February 15, 2018 | The Homer Horizon LIFE &ARTS Publisher announces winners of 2018 Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest Creativity, compassion on display across 623 total entries Bill Jones, Managing Editor Proving once again to be one of the most popular annual contests run by 22nd Century Media, the 2018 Valentine’s Day Coloring Contest saw 623 total entries across three age groups and seven towns. And while a lucky nine have been chosen (see accompanying images and awards) as winners, the gigantic collection of entries was to be delivered to area veterans with the help of a local organization. With that in mind, 22nd Century Media would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter and spread the love this Valentine’s Day. As for the contest, this year we picked first, second and third in each of the age groups. Winners were chosen based on creativity and neatness. All three of the 9- to 12-year-old winners are to receive two hours of free bowling for up to six people, including shoe rentals, along with a pizza and pitcher of pop, at Laraway Lanes, 1009 W. Laraway Road in New Lenox. The three 6- to 8-year-old winners will get a multi-use pass for the Splash Park run by the Mokena Community Park District. And the 3- to 5-year-old winning entrants will take home a $5 gift certificate to Dairy Queen, 950 E. 9th St. in Lockport. Publisher 22nd Century Media also would like to thank the contest’s generous sponsors.
