We’re pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Bookmark Drawing Contest. Artists were challenged to submit a black and white drawing for a “coloring page” in the size of a bookmark. Thanks to everyone who voted including our staff and community members. 

We received some truly beautiful submissions. The top two from each of the four age categories will be printed and distributed as a Well-Being Coloring activity. 

Did you know that coloring enhances your well-being?

Coloring can be highly effective in fostering physical and emotional well-being for all ages. It stimulates creativity, enhances focus and fine motor development, and reduces stress and anxiety.

Join us on the journey on the Way to Well-Being. Starting this Winter, we are launching a challenge to advance well-being in our community. To participate in the challenge or learn more, visit: https://cityofpasadena.libwizard.com/f/wellbeing
