Mungall celebrates young artists

MLA Michelle Mungall celebrated the creativity of the region’s young people recently with the winners of her Colour the Legislature contest

Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall celebrated the creativity of the region’s young people recently with the winners of her Colour the Legislature contest: Faye Peterson of Argenta, Payden Eyre-Dombrowski of Salmo, Yeshi Jinparello of Ymir, Oliver Haksson of Nelson.

Over the summer Mungall held a colouring contest, open to anyone in her riding 12 and under. She also visited libraries, community halls and markets to connect with her younger constituents and teach them about the role of government, MLAs and the legislature.

“It was really inspiring, and a lot of fun to colour with kids and talk to them about what I do in Victoria,” reflects Mungall. “They were very interested to learn about the legislative buildings, and we received a lot of beautiful entries into the colouring contest.”

Mungall treated the winners and their families to lunch and will feature their art in her annual report to constituents.

“I am really happy with my picture, I was only 10 at the time” said Faye Peterson winner of the Most Realistic Age 7 to 12. “It was important I remembered the legislature roof is now green because it is rusted copper.”

“The Kootenays have a bright future with our young people,” says Mungall. “Congratulations and thank you to Payden, Yeshi, Faye, Oliver and all of the wonderful artists who shared their work with me.”
