Here’s who won the Darien Youth Commission’s 22nd Annual Halloween Window Painting Contest this year.
Town Youth Director Alicia Sillars announced the winners Thursday and described this year’s contest with this statement:
Fortunately, the weather was absolutely perfect — a bright, crisp, sunny fall day.
With 30 teams of middle & high school aged students painting storefronts throughout the community, it was hard not to get caught up in the fun!
Like many special events, these activities are made possible as a result of the unique partnership the Darien Youth Commission forges with the public and private sectors.
Special thanks to Beth Cherico, owner of Pie in the Sky, LLC (a mobile art education service) for lending her expertise to the judging portion of this event.
Thanks to the Depot for again graciously allowing us to host our winners’ reception for the winning and honorable mention teams.
And thank you to the merchants whose level of enthusiasm for this activity rivals the students.
