Denver, CO, December 14, 2017-Every year, Longmont Dairy Farm hosts an art contest for students ranging from five to seventeen years old. The winning art piece is featured on their holiday eggnog bottle. Bailey Fitzpatrick, a third-grader at Mt. Carbon Elementary, won the 2017 Bottle Design contest.
This year’s theme was a “Silly, Festive Snowman,” and Bailey‘s design for the bottle featured a snowman dressed as a cow. At eight years old, Bailey is the youngest winner in the design contest’s history.
“The competition is pretty stiff for the younger kids,” said the company representative Molly Burgess. “But through the years, we have seen young kids continuing to enter each year. And each year they get better.”
Students submit their entries for the contest by mid-August and eagerly await the winner’s announcement in November. The eggnog with Bailey’s design during was delivered the week of December 10. The empty glass bottles make the perfect recycled keepsake or Christmas decoration.
Bailey is the oldest of two daughters of Thomas and Rebecca Fitzpatrick. She enjoys drawing, as evident by her contest win, as well as playing the piano, dancing tap, and reading. She looks forward to entering fourth grade next year, so she can start playing a musical instrument with her school.
Bailey loves to visit the Littleton Historical Museum, stating, “it’s like going back into the olden days.”
Bailey likes to play with her younger sister and their Goldendoodle, Copper. She helps her parents bake and decorate cakes, and she knows how to whip cream. At Christmas, Bailey enjoys decorating cookies and eating them with a glass of milk.
