Kids Club Announces Winners of Art Contest

Dec. 19, 2006 – FirstBank congratulated Na'Quan Lewis, Luis Carrion and Cherry Seraphin, the winners of its first annual Kids Club holiday art contest. The Students First at FirstBank Kids Club members were invited to create holiday themed artwork to be judged on Nov. 10, in a contest for the cover of the holiday greeting cards. The three winners were chosen by a panel of judges from Lambert Media Team, a local advertising agency. A total of 31 entries were received from St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John Kids Club members. The three winner's artwork will be printed on FirstBank, First Express and First Insurance greeting cards distributed to clients during the 2006 holiday season. In addition, each winner received a grand prize of $50 for his or her winning entry. Seemore Sea Turtle, the Kids Club mascot, presented the winners their checks at a small reception on each island.
Na'Quan Lewis, whose art won the cover of FirstBank's greeting card, depicted an underwater scene and even included a drawing of FirstBank's logo. Na'Quan goes to Ivanna Eudora Kean High School on St. Thomas and is in the 9th grade. Cherry Seraphin's art depicted a family at Christmas time sharing presents and enjoying each other's company. Cherry's art won the cover of First Insurance's greeting card. She attends Addelita Cancryn Junior High School on St. Thomas and is in the 7th grade. Luis Carrion, a 4th grader at Claude O. Markoe Elementary School on St. Croix, depicted a beach scene with Santa Claus resting on a lounge chair, listening to a nearby steel pan player. His art won the cover of First Express' greeting card.
Each club member who submitted an entry to the contest received a gift package and a note from Seemore as a "Thank you" for their participation and congratulating them on a job well done.
