Free Press Christmas Coloring Contest

We are excited this year to add a Christmas coloring contest to our publication that will include some gift bundles from our team for the winners. Children up to 10 years old are invited to draw and send in their pictures to the Free Press. Tomorrow while you are enjoying Thanksgiving, encourage your child or grandchild to take some time to draw a picture to share.

Gifts from Us to the Winners

There will be some surprise gifts from us at the Franklin County Free Press for the winners. If your child is selected, we will email you. The gift bundles will include things like books, art supplies, and other small age-appropriate gifts.

Submit your drawing

You can easily submit your child’s drawing below. All we ask for is their first name, age, and your email address. You can do this from your phone or computer. We recommend taking a picture from your phone or tablet and upload it.

Who We Are

The Franklin County Free Press, established by Vicky Taylor in 2019, emerged as a beacon of local journalism for the residents of Franklin County. Under Vicky's leadership, it quickly became an essential source of news, particularly at a time when major newspaper publications were increasingly overlooking local coverage.

On January 1, 2022, the torch was passed to Nathan Neil and his firm, Neil Publishing, LLC. Neil, a local entrepreneur with multiple thriving businesses in Chambersburg, shares Vicky's fervent commitment to both the community and the world of local journalism.

Rooted in the heart of Franklin County and powered by its residents, the Franklin County Free Press continues to bridge the gap, ensuring that the local stories, events, and issues that matter most to the community remain in the spotlight.
