Calling All Young Artists:
Design Mayor McNamara’s Holiday Card

The winter holiday season is fast approaching and Mayor Tom McNamara needs help! Each year, the mayor sends out a holiday card to companies and organizations in our community. 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

· Recognition at a Rockford City Council meeting

· A $25 gift card to Beef-A-Roo

· A $25 gift card to Rockford Art Deli


Submit your original design in person or 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 5, 2021, for consideration.
