Calling All Rockford Young Artists!

Design Mayor McNamara’s Holiday Card!

The winter holiday season is fast approaching and Mayor Tom McNamara needs your help!  Each year, the mayor sends out a winter holiday greeting to companies and organizations that make our community move forward. Once again this year, he’d like to use a card designed by a Rockford elementary or middle school student.

Here are the guidelines:

  • Design should be secular or appropriate for all religions and should help capture the feeling of the holiday spirit in Rockford.
  • Artwork must be original and no larger than 8.5” x 11”.
  • Design should be created with crayon, water colors, paints, pencil, ink, markers, or colored pencil, so that the winning art can be easily reproduced.
  • The mayor will have some experts help him choose the winner.

The winner will receive:

  • Their design/name on the holiday card and 10 copies of the card
  • A $25 gift card to Beef-A-Roo
  • A $25 gift card to Rockford Art Deli

Submit your original design by mail to:

City of Rockford Mayor’s Office
425 East State Street
Rockford, IL 61104

Entrants should include their name, address, phone number, school, grade, and age.

Artwork must be received in the Mayor’s Office no later than November 6, 2020, for consideration.
