Grab your crayons for the coloring contest stampede

SUMMIT COUNTY – Join the stampede as young buckaroos gather their crayons and try to color their way to fame and fun.

Children 7 and younger may enter the Mountain Community Fair Kick Off’s Commemorative Poster Coloring Contest by coloring the outline of a rider on a bucking bronco. See the Summit Daily News for the picture and contest details.

The coloring that ropes in the most votes from a panel of judges will be featured on a commemorative poster for the kick-off event for the week-long Mountain Community Fair in Silverthorne. The poster will be displayed throughout Summit County beginning June 15 and sold for a nominal fee.

“We see this turning into an event big enough to where these posters will become a collectors’ item,” said Maggie Butler, pavilion and special events coordinator for the town of Silverthorne.

The winner also will receive four free tickets to the Kick Off July 6, four tickets to the Mountain Community Fair and four tickets for dinner at a local restaurant. Plus, he or she will appear on stage at the barn dance and dinner and be featured in next May’s issue of Silverthorne Pastimes.

The Kick Off will include a live band, dancing and prizes. Keystone has donated a wooden horse that glides out of a gate and moves back and forth while cowboys and cowgirls test their roping abilities. The best rodeo clown look alike and the best line dancers also will win prizes. The Kick Off is a fund raiser for Summit County 4-H.

Entries for the coloring contest must be received by June 1. A panel of judges, made up of representatives from the Mountain Community Fair board, Summit Daily News and the town of Silverthorne, will announce the winner by June 8.
