Winter

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

Winter

Looks like glittering white snow and bright green Christmas trees

Sounds like kids yelling during an epic snowball fight and sweet

Christmas carols…

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

Winter

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
