8 Elementary Students Win Their Artwork on Cover of Holiday Card
UNITED WAY’S ANNUAL HOLIDAY CARD COLORING CONTEST
Spring Hill, FL – (December 13, 2021) - United Way of Hernando County hosted their 7th Annual Holiday Card Coloring Contest this fall. Hernando County students enrolled from kindergarten through 5th grade had the chance to participate and color a holiday beach themed coloring sheet. Students were encouraged to submit their finished artwork to United Way for a chance to win. United Way chose 8 lucky winners that creatively embraced the LIVE UNITED spirit. Their artwork is featured on the cover of United Way’s 2021 Holiday Cards. These fun and crafty cards are sent out to over 200 Community Partners, Board of Directors, local businesses, Partner Agencies and more!
United Way had an impressive total of 150 children enter the contest. Reviewing each and every submitted sheet was such a joyous opportunity for the United Way selection committee. “Our team looks forward to this every year,” said United Way’s Executive Director, Angie Walasek. “Our students and even the art teachers get into it every year! We made a tough decision narrowing down all of the beautiful artwork to only 8 winners. We were just so impressed by the effort from these hard working students, as young as 2nd grade! So much so, that we also awarded the winner’s classrooms and teachers free school supplies as an end of the year gift.” United Way will be delivering stuffed backpacks loaded of goodies to each of the winners’ classroom as a thank you for being so creative.
United Way would like to congratulate 2021 Holiday Coloring Card Contest Winners: Payton C., Lyla B., and Kira L. from J.D. Elementary, Sai A., Makenzie G., Alexis C., and Catalina M. from Challenger K-8, and Eloise H., from Winding Waters K-8
