We asked, and you delivered.

We recently ran a story on wrapping paper — specifically how most is not recyclable and newsprint is a better recycling choice — and asked readers to show us their gifts wrapped in our specially designed News&Guide wrap.

Below we highlight three submissions, each of which brought something unique to the present wrapping game.

We couldn’t pick just one, so all three will receive a 2020 print-plus subscription, 2020 News&Guide calendar and a $25 Persephone gift card. Thanks for keeping the holidays green and bright with the News&Guide.

Award: Love local news(print)

Maria Rachal

Maria Rachal wrote us with her submission photo saying she was “so excited to use your special wrapping paper print in the newspaper.”

Judges comments: We love anyone who is as excited about newsprint as we are ... and we never tire of a Teton view. Thanks for your submission.

Award: Black, white and re(a)d all over

Judy Johnson

Judy Johnson is a long-time recyclable wrapper, having used newsprint for “all my gifts about 30 years ago, tying them with wide red ribbon. It was a hit.” This year she again turned to the News&Guide for wrap, using more than just our specially designed sheet for her packages.

Judges comments: Black and white and re(a)d all over? Yes, please.

Award: Best in bow

Cynthia Wiley

Cynthia Wiley submitted photos of her creatively wrapped packages that also featured elegantly designed bows made of newsprint.

Judges comments: A completely recyclable package? You had us at bow.
