In honor of Chinese New Year, I thought we’d visit one of our Asian markets this week. We recently held a coloring contest in Taiwan. Sounds simple enough, right? I know I participated in many a contest at my local grocery store growing up, for every holiday – even taking home 3rd place and $10 prize one year for my bunny and Easter egg masterpiece. But Taiwan’s dense population (meaning, there’s a lot of people living in a relatively small amount of land) turned into 10,000 entries!
Art professors and local artists judged the contest and announced 106 winners. At first glance, you might not realize that each entry started with the same coloring sheet—so you can see that we received some very customized and creative entries!
Don’t forget to pick up some Red Anjou pears for the year of the rabbit – remember that red is a very auspicious color in Chinese culture!
