Fourth-grader Yenlys Lopez-Ramos submitted this entry in the Mini Standard calendar contest for the month of September.

The Southern Standard is preparing to print its Mini Standard coloring calendar.

Drawings from local students will be used as the artwork for each calendar month with online voting currently underway to determine the winning entries.

The artwork which has advanced to the finals has been uploaded to Voting is simple. At the top, left corner of the home page, click on “Bonnie’s Art Gallery” to vote on your favorite entry.

Students in all Warren County schools in grades K-5 were asked to submit drawings appropriate for the season. For example, the entries for July include pictures of fireworks, while the entries for September feature Ferris wheels in honor of the fair.

“We’re excited to highlight the artwork of our children in our annual Mini Standard calendar,” said Standard publisher Patricia Zechman. “It will certainly be a keepsake for the lucky ones who have their drawings selected.”

Online voting will continue until Sept. 25. One vote can be placed per day per device.

The calendar is scheduled to be published in our Friday, Oct. 4 edition.
