Culver's presented Michael with a coupon for a free kids meal for 12 months. The coloring contest attracted around 400 entries.

BELOIT - One little boy will get many Culver's treats thanks to his artistic abilities.

Powers Elementary School second grader Michael Borden, son of Cassandra Derke and Nicholas Borden, won this year's Culver's coloring contest out of close to 400 entrees from his school.

To celebrate his tidy and colorful artistry, Culvers presented him with coupons for a free kids meal once a month for the next 12 months.

All other children who participated will receive a coupon for a free custard.

"All of the kids will end up winners," said Beloit Culver's Assistant Manager Josh Lock.

Michael said he likes art and he used alternating colors for the lettering, colored Scoopy blue and added some neon colors. Children could color a picture of Scoopy by a wreath and Scoopy by a tree.

On Jan. 30, his principal Vickie Smith and the Beloit Turner Superintendent Dennis McCarthy joined with Michael at Beloit Culver's to enjoy lunch with him. Michael decided to get a cheeseburger while his lunch friends were opting for salads. When asked where he would like to sit, Michael said he was a "booth man."

Lock said Culver's hosts the coloring contest around the holidays at a different school each year. The restaurant is decorated with the pages, until staff ran out of room.
