Allegheny West Magazine - Coloring Contest!

Allegheny West Magazine

Elementary Holiday Coloring Contest



For the fourth consecutive year, we’re letting local elementary students design the cover of our November and December editions. We’re opening this contest up to elementary students attending Moon Area, Montour and West Allegheny. Our favorite submission from each district will go on the cover of the edition serving that district. Runners-up from each district will be printed on our contents page.


Since we know students work hard on these submissions, we’re asking all participating students to please follow these guidelines to ensure that their creations can be considered:


  1. This contest is open to grades K-4 and must have been created by the student submitting the work. No outside help please!
  2. Submissions must use the template provided by Allegheny West Magazine.
  3. No copyrighted characters (Disney, etc.). Submissions with depictions of copyrighted characters unfortunately cannot be considered for publication.
  4. Any medium, except photography, is permitted. However, please avoid pasting large or thick objects to the page as these cannot be scanned. Submissions should be able to lay flat, face down.
  5. Submissions should have a theme consistent with the winter season or with the holidays that take place in December. No Halloween themes, as these editions will mail in November.
  6. Submissions must be received by Nov. 1.
  7. All submissions must have the following information written on the back:
    • First and last name
    • Grade
    • School building
