We here at 360, for this week's print edition, had to get resourceful, once word came that our regularly scheduled cover subject, Ziggy Marley, would not be performing at WSU as expected. "Unforeseen circumstances" was the reason, whatever that means.
Inspired by the "childhood for adults" story by Chelsea Embree that is running inside this week's edition, we decided to come up with our own coloring page, substituting Pope Francis (and his irreverent, make-believe band) for Ziggy. And then, just for even more fun, we decided to turn it into a contest.
So, to all you youngsters at heart, we say: Dust off your art supplies and give Francis the artistic treatment. Then send your work to us here at 360, either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), by mail (360 Coloring Contest, 505 Capital St., Lewiston ID 83501, or in person (same address as above). Deadline is Sunday, Oct. 4. Our esteemed panel of judges will then consider the entries, and the one that most tickles our fancy will receive dinner and movie tickets for four.
If you'd prefer printing out the cover on regular paper, we're down with that. Click on this link to download a PDF that you can use for that purpose.
