The theme of this year’s coloring contest was “When I grow up, I want to be…” The winning entries—submitted by elementary and middle school aged children throughout eastern Idaho—were carefully selected by a panel of “coloring experts” comprised of a diverse group of Bingham Memorial employees. Each of the winners received $3,000 for their school and $500 for their classroom. In addition, each winner received a bicycle and helmet.

Some of the more popular jobs that the next generation of kids want to be when they grow up include: veterinarians, marine biologists, police officers, teachers, artists, and photographers. A lot of the drawings also indicated that kids would like to grow up to be forest rangers, inventors, astronauts, and even superheroes.
