  • Cards must be no larger than 4.5 inches by 6 inches (half the size of a standard piece of construction paper).
  • Cards must be handmade by the child.
  • You can drop off your submissions, or mail them to us – just make sure your card makes it to the Salisbury Post by Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. Our address is 131 W. Innes St. in Salisbury. Address your letters to Jeanie Groh, and include “Christmas card contest” somewhere on the envelope.
