The Second Annual Superintendent’s Holiday Card Contest

The Second Annual Superintendent’s Holiday Card Contest

Our district is very interested in featuring one of our student artists for this year’s Davidson County Schools holiday card that is shared during the season.  While there is not a requirement for every school to participate, the hope is to have one final entry from all of our schools.  

In order to select the overall winner and have the card sent to a printer, the final selection must be made by the Superintendent by the end of October. 

Dr. Lipe looks forward to seeing each school’s winning entry and sharing the artistic talents of one lucky winner with many others during the holiday season!
