THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS UPON US!
We called upon our athletes to make the season a little brighter by designing our Special Olympics Saskatchewan Holiday Card. In our annual tradition of holiday fun, we asked you to submit artwork of what the holidays and Special Olympics means to you!
Although the decision was a tough one, this years winner of the Holiday Card Contest was athlete Sarah Henry of Special Olympics Estevan!
We definitely have some talented and creative athletes across the province. Thank you to everyone who sent in a picture, they were all fantastic.
As this years winner, we asked Sarah some questions to get to know her a bit more, and to see what she was most looking forward to this holiday season. Keep reading below to see what she had to say!

During the summer, I participate in the Bocce ball Special Olympics and during the winter, I participate in the 5-pin bowling Special Olympics.
