Newton County Schools opens holiday card contest for students

COVINGTON — Newton County Schools and Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey are reaching out to students to design the school system’s holiday cards for this year.

According to a press release from the system, students are asked to design a theme that reflects winter in the district, Covington, the holidays, or other related themes.

Only non-religious themes and language will be considered in order to be inclusive to the entire student body.

“We have many gifted artists in our district, and I enjoy showcasing their talent through my holiday cards,” Fuhrey said in a press release. “The artwork I’ve received the past three years has been phenomenal, and it’s always extremely difficult to choose which ones to use on my cards. I’ve received numerous compliments on the holiday cards because the artwork has been absolutely outstanding. I think it’s only fitting that the school system’s official holiday card showcase the incredible artistic talent we have in our schools.”

Artwork must be in color and may be submitted as paintings, drawings or marker and should be on 8.5 x 11 white copy paper, and not folded to make a card.

Artwork will be scanned to fit the cover of the card, so students should use the entire page to create their design.

Artwork will not be returned.

Parents or guardians should complete a student participation form, found on the Newton County School System website at Winners will be notified in early December.

Artwork must be in the Newton County Schools Office of Public Relations, located at 2109 Newton Drive NE in Covington by the end of the school day on Friday, Nov. 10.
