Hatfield's Award

We are very proud to announce that Hatfield recently won First Place--Grade 2 in the Wisconsin Knights of Columbus Christmas poster! She came home from school on Thursday with the above certificate and medal of honor.

Unfortunately, the posters are no longer at her school, so I was unable to get a picture of her with her prize-winning drawing. The theme of this year's contest was "The True Meaning of Christmas." Hatfield explained that she made a triangle-shaped stable with a "big, pretty, yellow" star at the top of the it. She drew Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus resting in the stable.

When asked why she thought she won the contest, she said that many of the other students drew photos of Christmas trees or giving presents, but that to her, the true meaning of Christmas was Baby Jesus. Looks like someone's paying attention in Sunday School ;)

Congratulations on winning the poster contest that you entered. I hope you continue to draw as it is a good way to express how you feel, not to mention it is really fun too!
