NTH Photo Contest winners showcase ‘Christmas In Coweta’

Abby Smith has taken first prize in this year’s “Christmas In Coweta” photo contest.

Smith’s first-place photo showcases her son, Paxton, helping decorate a family friend’s Christmas tree in Moreland.

“This picture was taken at my dear friend Daffeny Wilhite’s house. I originally went over to help her decorate her tree, to help me get in the Christmas spirit,” Smith said. “Well, something magical happened, and sweet Paxton finally wanted to share in on the fun of decorating a Christmas tree.

“Not only did he help us with the main tree, but he also helped Daffney's son, Hunter Wilhite, with his small tree. Hunter is 19 years old and has Fragile X Syndrome,” Smith continued. “It was such a special moment to see Paxton have the heart to help others. It really brings the true meaning of the holiday into perspective even at the tender age of 4.”

Paxton is currently a pre-K student at Newnan Crossing Elementary School with Ms. Headrick and Ms. Gardner.

Lisa Smith took second place in the contest with a photo of her granddaughter, Sterling Smith, catching snowflakes during a recent trip to Ashley Park.

Third place was won by Derrick Teagle who snapped a photo of his nephew, Kash A. Simms, celebrating his very first Christmas. Simms, born Sept. 16, 2020, is the proud son of Crystal Keyana Teagle and Ricardo Simms.

Last year’s winner, Amanda Hand, helped judge this years’ entries.
