Welcome to the ninth annual Sun Newspapers Surfing Santa Coloring Contest, co-sponsored by Harbour Surfboards.
Consistent with prior years, the Sun received numerous entries and all were well done, making the selection difficult.
But winners had to be chosen and, this year, the top three prize winners were Seal Beach residents.
First place in this year’s contest went to Abigail O’Brian, 10, of Seal Beach, whose entry is pictured above.
Winners in years past have included children from Rossmoor, Garden Grove and Long Beach.
