Wow! We had over 100 children enter the Kannapolis Police Department’s Coloring Contest. Children between the ages of 4 and 10 were asked to color a copy of the uniform patch Kannapolis Police Officers wear.
“I want to thank all the children who entered. It was a difficult decision as there were so many wonderful entries. All the officers had a great time selecting the winners,” commented Kannapolis Police Chief Terry Spry.
After every officer voted - Milynzia Gaddy, 10, a homeschool student was selected as the first-place winner. Her colored version featured red, gold and blue glitter surrounding the borders of the patch. Her coloring has been converted to a cling decal and placed on every police vehicle in the City for the next two months.
The 2nd place winner was Amelia Astrada, who attends Winecoff Elementary School.
There was a tie for 3rd place – Keyon Reese who attends Forest Park Elementary School and Mila Allmon who is homeschooled.
All the winners received gift cards to do fun things around the City.
