Bend child receives 2nd place honor in national holiday art contest
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Lands’ End has selected Elizabeth Larson of Bend, Oregon as second place winner in the seven-to-nine age category of its Holiday Art Contest. Nine-year-old Elizabeth, daughter of Leslie Gill and Kevin Larson, earned second place with the creation of a uniquely artistic Christmas tree contrasted against a purple sky.  Her artwork will be featured on landsend.com/artcontest.

 
Elizabeth Larson's artwork won 2nd place honors in her age division in a national holiday art contest that drew over 3,500 entries 
An invitation to enter the contest in the Lands’ End Kids July catalog prompted thousands of children across America to draw their depiction of the holidays in hopes of having their work featured in the catalog or on the website.  In a little over one month, Lands’ End was pleasantly surprised to receive over 3,500 entries.

“The heartwarming response from these talented children has been incredible,” said David McCreight, President of Lands’ End.  ”Seeing the holidays through the eyes of a child brings the joy of the season to light.”

As second place winner, Elizabeth received a $250 Lands’ End Gift Card.  The Kids’ Holiday Art Contest consisted of three age categories: one-to-six, seven-to-nine and ten-to-12.  Each of the categories was awarded a first, second and third place prize.
