The Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia has wrapped up voting for its first-ever My Perfect Tree colouring contest. Just under 600 entries were received from elementary school students across the province.

Facebook fans named seven-year-old Abbie Little as the winner of the contest with over 250 likes on her entry. Instead of putting her winnings in her piggy bank, Abbie, a Grade 2 student at Coldbrook & District School, has opted to donate her real Christmas tree and $50 prize to a family in her community who may need it more this holiday season.

“We were very pleased with the response to the colouring contest, but we certainly didn’t expect such a show of generosity on behalf of the winner,” said Angus Bonnyman, CTCNS executive director. “Abbie’s gesture has confirmed that the Christmas spirit is alive and well in Nova Scotia.”

Voting took place on the CTCNS Facebook page from Nov. 29 to Dec. 13 to determine the grand prize winner. A random winner from each county represented was also selected to win $25. County winners were: Annapolis – Ryan, Grade Primary; Antigonish – Lily, Grade 2; Cape Breton – Thunder, Grade 5; Colchester – Amy, Grade 3; Cumberland – Lilly, Grade Primary; Guysborough – Emma, Grade 2; Halifax – Parker, Grade 2; Hants – Kaden, Grade 3; Kings – Anna, Grade Primary; Lunenburg – Carson, Grade 1; Victoria – Skyler, Grade Primary.
