FCPS Students Invited to Submit Art for Card Design Contest

Fredericksburg City Public Schools is now accepting Birthday and Holiday Card Design submissions from currently enrolled students in grades Pre K-12.

Winning entries will be published on the division website. One winner will be selected for each card and those artists will be recognized at an upcoming School Board meeting and will receive cards for personal use.

FCPS Holiday Cards will be sent to all division employees and numerous other recipients. Throughout the school year every FCPS employee receives a Birthday Card from the Superintendent.

Students are encouraged to completely fill the page but keep the design simple, using as many colors as they want. Students may use watercolors, colored paper, magic markers, crayons or a combination of those items. Pencil drawings and fabric drawings are not suitable for our printing process and will not be selected.
