Crayon Jewels

This year’s summer issue came out with a twist: the cover was a coloring page.

The collegiate collage on our summer cover featured some of BYU’s most iconic locations, buildings, and statues. We invited readers to color the cover and send in a copy, and Cougars—and Cougar cubs—responded in kind.

We posted the collection in a coloring contest on Facebook, where the cover with the most likes won Chip Cookies. We sent cookies to a few other award winners as well. See the fan favorite, the other winning categories, and the full gallery of submissions below.
