SIXTY children were kept busy putting their ideas into colour- ful images at a colouring compe- tition organised by the Popular Book Co.
The children, accompanied by their ‘eager beaver’ parents, converged on the corridor of the Po-pular Book outlet in Prangin Mall recently to show off their colouring skills.
Armed with crayon and colour pencil, the young contestants, aged between four and 12, were absorbed in their work putting their creati- vity into their best ever colourful pieces.
They were given 90 minutes to complete their ‘masterpieces’.
The theme for the contest was Colours of Peace and Harmony held in conjunction with the National Day celebrations.
It was a carnival-like atmo- sphere as shoppers stopped by to find out what the fuss was all about.
Popular Book Co administrative co-ordinator Ong Tee Kheng said the company received overwhel-ming response that some had to be turned away for coming in late.
Seven-year-old Grace Ong was picked as the first prize winner for the age group of between four and seven years while 11-year-old Lee Yuan Jun won for the age group of eight to 12 years.
Each winner took home a trophy, certificate and hampers.
