Representatives from local businesses, along with News Herald Advertising Representative Linda K. Ballard, presented gifts to several Kilgore Intermediate School students selected as winners in the Herald's annual Christmas Card Coloring Contest on Monday, Dec. 19.  

Each business prepared gifts for the winning fourth grade students, who all crafted colorful drawings of Christmas scenes for the participating businesses. The rest of Kilgore Intermediate's fourth grade class assembled in the school's cafeteria to watch the gift-giving ceremony.
