The CROP Hunger Walk/ Turkey Trot committee announces the winner of the first-ever Los Alamos CROP Hunger Walk/Turkey Trot logo contest.

The contest was open to all local fourth- through sixth-grade students who live in Los Alamos or whose parents work here. The winner is Sarah Worley,  a 10-year-old fifth grader at Piñon Elementary School.

Worley said that she has participated in the walk her whole life. “I’ve walked in it with my family, every year of my life except one. So this will be my 10th time walking,” she said.

Her inspiration for the logo came from the idea that people can win a turkey and a pumpkin pie through the random drawing after the walk, so she decided to draw a person holding those things. In the background, she drew people walking from all around the world because, in her words, “people all over the world have to walk to get something as basic as water.”  

“We appreciate Sarah’s creativity and the inspiration she gives in being a lifelong walker and thinking about the difficulties facing many around the world. Sarah will receive a free T-shirt, as well as the sincere appreciation of our local CROP Hunger Walk committee,” said CROP Hunger Walk Coordinator Lynn Wysocki-Smith.

The following young artists submitted logos to the contest, as well.
Second place: Alexis Garcia
Third place: Katie Laintz
Fourth place: Janessa Gonzales
Honorable mentions include  Dara Armstrong, Allegra Dougherty, Karin Ebey, Makenna Ellsworth, Duncan Fuehne, Koya Fuke, Eva Gerrish and Kalen Melton.

Join the Los Alamos CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot at 2 p.m. Sunday at the middle school. Arrive between 1:15-1:45 p.m. Donations of canned food for LA Cares or checks or cash for the CROP Walk are accepted.

Stay after the 2.57 mile fun run/walk and be entered in a random drawing for turkeys or pumpkin pies.
