Painting Contest, Word on the Street 2009

The Button Factory, Neruda Productions and Latin Life Magazine were at Victoria Park on Saturday for the Word on the Street festival. We hosted a painting contest for kids aged 5-14. The winner will have their painting featured on the front cover of the next issue of Latin Life! Other prizes included a Chapters gift card, and a night at the movies! We had 45 entries, and the decision was tough.
The theme of the paintings: fall.
The winners: Oliver and Eric!
