Bingham Memorial Hospital Holding Regional Back-to-School Coloring Contest

Bingham Memorial Hospital is excited to announce that they will be kicking off the Bingham Memorial Back-to-School Coloring Contest as a continuation of their 65th anniversary celebration.

“We believe that coloring can be a fun, healthy, and educational experience that develops creativity,” says Mark Baker, director of public relations at Bingham Memorial Hospital. “Plus, we’re excited to be able to give back in a small way financially, helping teachers and administrators enhance the learning experience for their students.”

Bingham Memorial is hoping all creative coloring artists from grades K through 8 will help them celebrate 65 years of Bingham Memorial’s history. Students from grades K through 8 could win:

  • Up to $10,000 for their school.
  • $500 for their class.
  • A new bike with helmet for themselves.

Plus, all three winner’s creations will be incorporated into a special Bingham Memorial Hospital advertising campaign in local newspapers.

There are three categories and three ways for a school to win:

  • Group 1: Grades K-2 ($3,000 prize for the school & $500 prize for the classroom)
  • Group 2: Grades 3-5 ($3,000 prize for the school & $500 prize for the classroom)
  • Group 3: Grades 6-8 ($3,000 prize for the school & $500 prize for the classroom)
