Calling All Kids! We Need Your Best Holiday Artwork!

Holiday Card Contest details
Iredell-Statesville Schools is conducting a contest to select student artwork for this year's Iredell-Statesville Schools holiday card! Students are encouraged to submit their best, full-color holiday creation. Winners will be selected by the community to have their artwork used as the cover of the district card. A winner will be selected from grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 via Facebook likes. The winners will be determined by the most likes on their artwork.  Winners will receive a certificate and will be recognized during the January Board of Education meeting. 
All entries must be received by the Public Relations Office by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.  Since it worked so well last year, the artwork will be uploaded into albums via Facebook on the Iredell-Statesville Schools Facebook page and go live on Wednesday, December 5, 2017, by 5:00 p.m.  Everyone is welcome to "vote" for their favorite card by simply liking the photo.  Voting will end at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 13, 2018.
Remember that by submitting artwork, students authorize Iredell-Statesville Schools to use the image and give credit to the artist.
