Earlier this year we asked you to share a little bit about Toastmasters with the young family members in your lives. To help celebrate the organization’s 98th anniversary this month, we held the Toastmaster Magazine Coloring Contest for Kids, which took place from June 29 to July 31. The contest was open to any young relative, age 17 or under, of an active Toastmasters member—and now the results are in!

The Magazine Team received nearly 70 entries from the children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews of members in 23 countries. With so many colorful and creative submissions, it was difficult for the judges to decide.

Congratulations to Chhavi, age 12, whose winning entry is displayed as this month’s magazine cover. Chhavi is the daughter of Toastmaster Bhaskar J., from Maharashtra, India. We also want to acknowledge the kids who earned Honorable Mention in their age group, as well as special winning categories.
