The Dunn County Herald received many creative pieces of artwork for the first ever Herald Front Page Contest.

In an effort to help select a winner from the artistic works, two finalists’ work was placed on the Herald’s Facebook page for readers to help with the difficult judging process.

Over 60 Facebook comments and further deliberation later, a winner was selected.

Twelve-year-old Karly Bang of Killdeer was selected as the winner for her colorful painting – the only painted piece that was submitted.

The sixth-grader’s art had “Dunn County since 1908” painted in black across it. When asked how she knew when the county was established, Bang said she researched Dunn County.

“I looked it up online,” Bang said.

In a tight contest for first place, Bang’s contender was Cheyenne Carr, 10, and her drawing that paid homage to Dunn County’s oil assets.

Carr said her favorite part of her work was the trucks, drawn because her father is a truck driver.

Many more of the contenders’ drawings will be hung up inside the Dunn County Herald office in the coming days.
