Now through August 31, 2013, TWIG of Nationwide Children’s Hospital invites kids 16 years and younger to submit holiday artwork for the 2013 Holiday Cards Contest. Each year, TWIG selects pieces of children’s artwork and creates holiday cards, which are then sold to raise money for the hospital.
Young artists may submit original, holiday-themed drawings or paintings by mailing it to:
Nationwide Children’s Hospital Foundation
Attn: TWIG Holiday Card Contest
700 Children’s Drive
Columbus, OH 43205
Along with the artwork, artists should submit the following information with their entry – artist name and age, parent/guardians’ name(s), mailing address, phone number and email address. If the artist is a former or current patient of Nationwide Children’s, please make sure to include that in the entry along with a brief story. It is not necessary for the artist to be a patient in order to enter the contest.
This year, four winning entries will be selected and notified by September 16, 2013. All non-winning entries can be picked up from Nationwide Children’s Foundation after that date. The winning entries will be reproduced and available for sale beginning October 1, 2013 at NationwideChildrens.org/TWIG.
