[ARCHIVED] Sheriff's Office Greeting Card Design Contest

Scott County Sheriff’s Office’s ‘Season’s Greetings’ Card Design Contest


The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is searching for creative kids to help design the artwork for its 2017 ‘Season’s Greetings’ Card. The winning entry will be used on the front of the Sheriff’s Office’s greeting cards which are mailed in December primarily to agency partners, sponsors and various officials.


WHO:  Scott County residents/students ages twelve (12) and under may submit original artwork to the “2017 ‘Season’s Greetings’ Card Design Contest”.

WHAT:  Original artwork with a winter- themed picture incorporating the Scott County Sheriff’s Office in some way (i.e. snowmen, recreational safety, ice fishing, drinking hot cocoa, winter sports, snowflakes, penguins, mittens/hats, snowscapes, sledding, gingerbread cookies, ice skating, etc.).  Feel free to incorporate our Sheriff star and/or badge.

The design should portray positive police and community relationships.  We want children to understand that we are committed to their well-being, safety and security; our job is so much more than writing tickets and arresting people.
