Congratulations to Lilly Montoya, age 9, of Anchorage, for winning first place in the 2017 Doyon, Limited holiday artwork contest. Montoya submitted a mixed sketch and crayon drawing of a Christmas tree surrounded by Alaska animals and the Big Dipper. In addition to winning the first-place prize of a 128 GB engraved mini iPad, Montoya’s art will be featured on Doyon’s annual shareholder holiday calendar, which will arrive in Doyon shareholder mailboxes this month.
Second-place winner, Olivia Boyles, age 9, of Fairbanks, painted a Christmas-themed family portrait using acrylic paints she won last year for her third-place entry in the holiday art contest. This year, Boyles won arts supplies and a $50 gift card for her entry.
Third-place winner, Michael Maillele, age 12, of Anvik, used colored pencils to draw an outdoor scene with Alaska animals and a live Christmas tree against a mountainous background.
The holiday artwork contest was open to Doyon shareholders and shareholder direct descendants between the ages of 5 – 17 years old. Submissions were sought via the Doyon shareholder newsletters and Facebook announcements, and were due by October 13, 2017.
“This year we had a superb amount of creative submissions for the holiday artwork contest that made it very difficult to choose winners,” said Lessa Peter, Doyon communications specialist. “We thank all of the participants and look forward to next year’s entries.”
