We received hundreds of entries from kids in Washington, Maryland and Virginia for this year’s annual Weekend/Going Out Guide Holiday Wrapping Paper Contest. And the creativity was astounding. There were underwater Santas, Chinese okra stamps, snowmen, nutcrackers, Christmas trees and holiday symbols of everything from Kwanzaa to the Chinese New Year. Now it’s your turn to help pick the winner.
We’ve chosen 12 finalists, with three from each age group (6 and younger; 7- and 8-year-olds; 9- and 10-year-olds; and 11- and 12-year-olds). After the winner is picked, his or her artwork will appear in Weekend on Dec. 23 as a sheet of gift wrap. So cast your vote soon at wapo.st/wrapvote. The voting ends at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 11.
