OGDEN — The main education room at the Ogden Eccles Dinosaur Park is filled with drawings of dinosaurs – some painted, some colored, some pieced together with paper, but all done by students in Ogden and Weber school districts.
For the last eight years Maggie Favero, the park’s education director, has held an art contest for elementary students to draw anything relating dinosaurs, and it has been a huge success.
This year she had 125 entrants. Three judges selected 18 winners from each school district, with a first, second and third place from each grade, one through six. The first place winners get a $100 gift card to Wal-Mart while second place gets $75 and third gets $50. The teacher of the winners are also awarded.
