The winning artwork will adorn the 2010 Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting card. Free cards will be available at City Hall, neighborhood service centers, community centers and libraries throughout Seattle. Winners will receive cash awards of up to $100.
The artwork should depict caring and active neighbors, reflecting the theme of Neighbor Appreciation Day. Past artwork has shown neighbors sharing meals; exchanging plants; and working together on a community project, such as building a new playground, painting a mural, or beautifying school grounds.
Art should be submitted on 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper. It is recommended that art be vivid in color. Pieces done in watercolor or magic marker tend to show better, but all formats are welcome. Student artwork must be received by 5 p.m., Friday, December 11 at the Department of Neighborhoods. For more information, contact Lois Maag, (206) 615-0950.
