Back in August, Haven Pharmacy launched a Healthy Minds Colouring Competition to encourage children to stretch their creativity in arts and crafts during Back to School time. The competition had two separate age categories for kids aged 4 – 7 years old and 8 – 12 years old. Entrants are invited to showcase their skills and colour in an illustration drawn by judge Don Conroy.
Pictured above is Don Conroy with the very difficult task of choosing just one winner per category.
Having encouraged many children to express their creativity over the years Don Conroy was back judging the competition again this year. Speaking at the judging of the competition Don said “I am delighted to be working with Haven again on this wonderful initiative. I cannot believe the amount of entries that have been sent in, it’s a testament to all the parents and teachers out there who are keeping up the children’s interest in the creative arts and taking a break from technology. It’s going to be a very tough decision but what I am really looking for is something that shows a lot of effort, where the entrant has put their own uniqueness to a blank canvas and made their vision come alive!”
After a long morning of deliberation, just two entrants were chosen out of thousands of entries… Here they are!
Winner of our 8-12 year old Category is Niamh Farrell who submitted her entry to Haven Gildeas in Kinnegad, Co. Westmeath.
Well done Niamh, Don was impressed with the level of detail and the little extras that he had to look really closely for. We love the Haven branding on the characters too! 🙂
Winner of our 4 – 8 year old Category is Alana Morris who submitted her entry to Haven Faheys, in Tullamore Co. Offaly.
Well done Alana, Don said that the burst of colour really caught his eye and the detailed accessories you added in were very impressive too! 🙂
These two very lucky ladies have each won a 4* family holiday to Delphi Adventure Resort which includes a 3 night stay in a Luxury Suite in Delphi Adventure Resort, full Irish breakfast each morning, 4 adventure tokens per person, free bike hire for the family on one day of choice, 3 course evening meal in The 814 Restaurant on two evenings of their choice and thermal suite experience for the parents… Enjoy your prize with the family girls!
Well done from everyone at Haven Pharmacy, until next year everybody- Keep Those Minds Healthy!
