In conjunction with the Pacific Palisades Historical Society, the American Legion Auxiliary is helping sponsor a coloring/art contest.

The contest will help Pacific Palisades celebrate its 100th birthday next January 14-15 at several landmark locations in the community, organized by the Historical Society.

The contest is open to all youth who live in Pacific Palisades, or who attend school here, and will close on December 1.

Kindergarten through fifth graders are invited to color a drawing created by town artist Katie O’Neil, who has patterned her drawing after one of the early Zola Clearwater Collection photos.

Copies of the drawing will be taken to all local schools. If more drawings are needed, contact the Auxiliary at (310) 454-0527.

Once the drawing is colored, the contestant should put their name, grade and a parent’s telephone number on the back of the sheet and deliver it to Estate Coffee at 847 Via de la Paz.

Kindergarten and first grade will be judged together; second and third will be judged together and fourth and fifth grade will be judged together. The winner in each category will receive $100.

For students in sixth through eighth grade, an original art project is sought. It can be based upon photos on the Historical Society website ( or an art project that best celebrates the town’s centennial. The winner will receive $300.

High school students are also invited to enter an original art project based on the town’s history. The winner will receive $300.

Members of the Pacific Palisades Art Association will judge the entries.

Good luck to everyone who participates in this contest.

    The date in the caption for the picture in this article should be January 14, 1922, not January 14, 2022.
