Scott County Sheriff’s Office’s 2021 Greeting Card Design Contest

 

 

Scott County Sheriff’s Office’s 2021 ‘Season’s Greetings’ Card Design Contest

 

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is holding our 5th Annual Greeting Card Design Contest and Sheriff Luke Hennen is inviting all Scott County children ages 12 and under to help us create the image for the front of the card, which will be mailed to our agency partners, sponsors, and various officials.

This exciting collaboration is meant to positively engage children with law enforcement in a fun and creative way, show off their artistic talents, and is a chance to win some great prizes!  

Help us spread the word about this contest!  We invite teachers to make this a fun class project and it’s also an opportunity to discuss the roles of law enforcement and first responders in our community.  

The deadline to submit artwork, either in person or by mail, is November 19, 2021.  

CONTEST DETAILS:  

WHO:    Scott County residents/students ages twelve (12) and under may submit original artwork to the Annual Greeting Card Contest

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.
