The winners of the Big Lake Police Dept. coloring contest, which took place at the Night to Unite picnic in Lakeside Park, were announced this week.
“We had a whole wall full of entries,” said Chief of Police Joel Scharf. “All the officers voted on their favorites.”
Winner in the 0-4 age group was Tayden Zimmerman, who won a bike equipped with flashing lights and a siren.
Tyler Huver won a bike donated by Big Lake Hardware Hank for his coloring and drawing in the 5-9 age group. Tyler says he really enjoys art and drawing.
Alexis Roehlke won a 10-person bowling party at McPete’s Entertainment Center in the ages 10 and up group. Alexis drew an officer behind the wheel and a police dog in the back seat of her squad car.
“Congratulations,” Chief Scharf said. “You did really well.”
