KidsPost received nearly 500 entries for this year’s Holiday Wrapping Paper Contest. There were snowmen, angels, reindeer and even holiday pandas! But the judges’ favorite was a series of winter scenes by Cole Goco, 12, of Arlington. Check out the three finalists in four age groups — 6 and younger; 7- and 8-year-olds, 9- and 10-year-olds, and 11- and 12-year-olds — and more than a dozen honorable mentions. Happy holidays!
