The Kindergarten Individual Winner from Nelson is:
Cedar Mannama with his triple contraption entry that included a Robot, Mechanical Fish Bowl, and a municipal lab for research!
Congratulations Cedar! He has won a home STEAM kit!
Cedar has been quite the inquisitive and precocious little boy, ever since he could talk in full sentences at 2 years old. Year-round you can find Cedar outside most of the day either swimming, making sandcastles, biking, sledding, making snowmen, helping with the family gardens, exploring the local trails and forests, even climbed Pulpit this year! When not outside, he loves singing Christmas carols, building and taking things apart including Lego, his science kit, toy cars, reading books for fun, for learning to read and for a real treat he likes books about human anatomy and inventions. Cedar loves raw vegetables, fruit, roasting marshmallows and hot dogs around a campfire and sneaking candy with his grandfather Pops.
Here is a recent interest story about Cedar and his visit with Nelson’s Mayor Dooley:
This fall he began to dress up regularly to school, to go to the park, and even to go fishing in what he calls his “Mayor Dooley” outfit, wearing a tie, suit and dress shoes that he recently inherited from his nephew. He tells people he is “Mayor Dooley” as he shakes peoples hands anywhere he is in Nelson! Recently he was invited and scheduled a visit with the real Mayor John Dooley at City Hall. He sat in the Mayor’s chair, wore the Mayor’s Coat of Arms around his neck, and photos were taken. He loved the visit so much, that he asked if he could go visit the Mayor again!
