EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)- The Humboldt County Correctional Facility’s inmate holiday art contest has returned for its third year.
The inmate holiday art contest is a painting contest held within the correctional facility in Eureka.
Each dorm within the facility is given supplies and are asked to work together to create a holiday scene.
This year…the sheriff’s office teamed up with the north coast journal to expand voting for the community.
“Our inmates are still part of our community and it’s really important to remind our inmates that and it’s also important to remind our community that,” said HCCF Program Sergeant Delia Garcia. “So, programs like this are great because you can see that and you can see the ingenuity and the creativity of the inmates and what they have to offer to our community.”
Voting is open through December 22, 2020 and to vote, click here.
