Running into its 115th year, Irrigation Festival organizers continued the annual button drawing competition for Sequim elementary students.
Amber Lamb, 11, a fifth-grader at Greywolf Elementary School, won for her drawing of a pioneer thinking of Sequim’s railroading past.
She said the picture took a day to draw and this is her fourth time entering the competition but her first to win.
Joe Borden, Irrigation Festival chairman, presented the honor to Lamb plus a $50 gift certificate to Tiny’z Toy Chest.
Fourth-grade teacher Teresa Iversen’s class at Greywolf won a basket of toys from Tiny’z for submitting the most drawings for the contest.
Lamb’s drawing will be placed on buttons that fifth-graders from Greywolf and Helen Haller Elementary will begin selling in March 2010 as a fundraiser for the festival. Those who sell the most buttons win prizes.
The Sequim Irrigation Festival runs May 1-9 next year.
