2014 Design Competition

  • Red Cross Saint Louis Holiday Mail Design Competition

Principals and Teachers:

Once again, the American Red Cross and the St. Louis Rams are partnering to encourage the St. Louis community to send holiday wishes to active military, their families and veterans in homes and hospitals. This year the effort is expanding to include a holiday card design competition. The winning design will be printed on 20,000 cards, signed by residents throughout the region and distributed to our military heroes.

We know your students have talent! We are asking them to share that talent with those who have served. Please encourage students to join the card design competition.
