Construction Projects Coloring Contest
Shorewood students, families, and staff members of all ages are invited to participate in our first ever coloring contest. Thanks to Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA), we have personalized coloring pages of the facilities work being done at each of our schools. 
To participate in the coloring contest, we ask that you print off one of the below personalized pages, color it, and submit  a photo of your finished work with your name, school, and grade level to [email protected]. Once we have received all entries, we will select winners in each of our categories (Ages 0-4, 5-8, 9-12, 13+, and Staff). Winners will be announced on Facebook following the May 29 groundbreaking ceremony at noon.

Good luck and we hope you will participate in this fun challenge!
