Tiger Tails drawing contest winners!

Posted by: Kirsten Pisto, Communications


This spring, we asked kids to complete the picture in our Tiger Tails drawing contest to get us pumped for phase two of the Bamboo Forest Reserve. Thanks to all of the amazing young artists who entered the contest through our MyZoo magazine kids section.

We received over 130 entries, some from as far away as Germany. It was a tough decision, but we had a lot of help – 25 staff from across the zoo assisted in judging. We considered detail, use of color, perspective, inspiration and creativity. We were all thrilled with your imagination and talent!

Below are the grand prize champs and their artwork. Drumroll please, and the prizes are…

Zoo Favorite Age 2-5
“Sneaky Tiger”
Logan Myers, 4

Zoo Favorite Age 6-12
“Bamboo Bengal”
Samantha Schallon, 11 


Logan and Samantha will both receive a zoo tiger adoption and plush, 4 giraffe feeding tickets and their framed drawing.

Most Inspiring
“Tiger and Friends”
Mila Armes, 7



Most Creative
“Tiger Roar”
Liam Greenmun, 6

Mila and Liam will both receive a Woodland Park Zoo t-shirt from our gift shop, 4 giraffe feeding tickets and their framed drawing. 

Congratulations Logan, Samantha, Mila and Liam! Check out the summer 2013 MyZoo magazine for their awesome artwork!
