It's the most wonderful time of the year - almost!
Beginning Thursday, August 1, 2014, MPB will accept entries to its annual holiday card contest! Children across the state will have the opportunity to have their artwork displayed on the official MPB Holiday Greeting Card.
The contest will last from August 1 - October 31, and the winner will be notified in November. The contest is open to all children ages 4-12 statewide.
PRIZES will be awarded to the top three entries: Third place will receive a $50 prize package, second place will receive a $100 prize package, and third place will receive a $200 prize package. The first place winner's artwork will also be published as the face of the MPB Holiday Greeting Card for 2014, which will be sent to friends and members of MPB, including government officials and other agencies around Mississippi.
The entries must incorporate a holiday theme, celebrating the season without being specific to any particular religion. Submissions must be no larger than 9" x 12" and may include any medium or combination of media, such as crayons, line drawings, watercolor or paint.
Each entry should be the artist's original creation and must include a completed official entry form; all artwork and completed forms are due by October 31, 2014.
