At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, Branson Bank distributed the “Crazy About Cookies’ Calendar Contest entry forms to Kindergarten through 4th grade students at Branson, Forsyth, Hollister, Kirbyville, Taneyville, Blue Eye, and Bradleyville Elementary Schools. The contest consisted of 2 parts: (1) a favorite cookie recipe and (2) a photo of the child baking the cookies in the kitchen.
Over 80 entries were submitted and 15 selected for each of the 12 calendar months. The 15 calendar winners are: JANUARY- Kaleb Carlton, 2nd Grade, Blue Eye, FEBRUARY- Siblings: Avery Crouse, 1st Grade and Riley Crouse, 3rd Grade, Branson, MARCH- Kera Mingus, 4th Grade, Forsyth, APRIL- Makinna Humbyrd, 1st Grade, Bradleyville, MAY- Siblings: Anna Zerbe, 1st Grade, and Amelia Zerbe, 3rd Grade, Branson, JUNE- Taran Fletcher, 3rd Grade, Blue Eye, JULY- Connor Hill, 4th Grade, Branson, AUGUST- Hunter Chambers, 2nd Grade, Forsyth, SEPTEMBER- Logan Clements, 2nd Grade, Taneyville, OCTOBER- Sarah Weisman, 4th Grade, Branson, NOVEMBER- Siblings: Drew Bray, 2nd Grade, and Eli Bray, 4th Grade, Hollister, DECEMBER- Emma Holloway, 3rd Grade, Branson.
“Each year we orchestrate a contest that gives local students an opportunity to display their talents in our annual calendar,” said Lyndi Carnelison, Community Relations Coordinator. “For 2013, we wanted to show how important it is for kids to get involved in the kitchen and in true, Branson Bank form, we asked them to make cookies. Congratulations to all the Branson Bank ‘Crazy About Cookies’ Calendar Winners!”
Branson Bank’s 2013 ‘Crazy About Cookies’ Calendar will be available just prior to Christmas, while supplies last, at their three convenient locations: Hwy 248, Falls Parkway, and in Forsyth.
