Looks like sparkling white snow and red and green Christmas lights
Sounds like carolers singing and skates scraping the ice
Smells like delicious sugar cookies with Mom’s homemade whipping cream…
Tastes like candy canes and cream puffs
Feels like slippery ice and my warm mug filled with peppermint tea
By Montana Beattie, age 7 – tied for first place
Looks like glittering white snow and bright green Christmas trees
Sounds like kids yelling during an epic snowball fight and sweet
Smells like fresh gingerbread cookies out of the oven and fresh hot cocoa
Tastes like hot apple cider with peppermint candy canes
Feels like cold wet snow and the chilling winter breeze.
By Luke Wilson age 8 – tied for first place
Looks like frozen silvery ice and frosted window panes
Sounds like snowmobiles roaring and hunters’ gun shots
Smells like gingerbread cookies and cinnamon hot chocolate …
Tastes like sugar cookies and Dairy Queen sundaes
Feels like cold snow and slippery ice.
By Maison Ruby age 8 – third place
