Wish Kids Invited to Enter Holiday Card Contest

It's that time of year again -- wish kids between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 are invited to send in submissions for our annual holiday card contest!

Design a creative card with your favorite winter holiday scene or characters that measures 5x7 inches and is drawn on plain white paper. 

Here are some other contest rules:

  • The artwork must be original and drawn by the wish child. 
  • Please do not use registered trademark characters such as Mickey Mouse and Batman or scenes from Give Kids the World in your design because we are not permitted to reproduce them. 
  • Include your name and age on a separate sheet of paper or on the back of the drawing 
  • Do not trace or copy your design from any coloring books or any other publication. 
  • Although not required, we suggest using markers and/or bright colors since they reproduce better.

Deadline for entries is Friday, August 2. Please send your drawings to:

Sorry, entries cannot be returned.  A group of impartial judges will select the winning cards.  Several designs will be chosen for print holiday cards and e-cards that will be sold during the holiday season in December to help make wishes come true for other kids just like you!  If you have any questions, please call Christina or Dana at 800-676-9474.
