The winners of the Post’s first holiday card contest took plain pieces of paper and transformed them into cards that can be proudly be tacked to the family fridge.
Students from across Rowan County cracked out crayons, markers, pencils, paint, glue, glitter, ribbon and pipe cleaners to make cards that began showing up at my desk several weeks ago. My desk has never looked quite so festive.
A gallery of all the entries is on the Post’s website.
Picking the winners was tougher than expected. It took a while to mull the cards over and decide on the victors. The ones you see here were chosen because of their creativity, they aren’t something you’d find at a greeting card store.
Winners for each division include:
Age 4-7 — Five-year-old Meghan Eagle, a kindergartner at Bostian Elementary. She is the daughter of David and Leslie Eagle of Kannapolis.
Age 8-11 — Nathaniel Bryant, 9, is a student at Shive Elementary. He lives in Gold Hill with his father, Wil Bryant.
Age 12-14 — Twelve-year-old Taylor Conrad, a student at Southeast Middle. She is the daughter of Melissa and Phillip Conrad of Salisbury.
Age 15-18 — Sara Gunter, 15, is a student at Carson High School. She lives in Salisbury with her parents Sunshine and Michael Gunter.
