Newton County School Superintendent (NCSS) Samantha Fuhrey is inviting NCSS students to design her official winter holiday card. The contest is open to all NCSS elementary, middle, and high school students.

Students are asked to design a theme that reflects winter in the school district, Covington, Georgia, the holidays, etc. All ideas are welcome; however, only nonreligious themes and languages will be considered in order to be inclusive of the NCSS student body. All artwork is due in the NCSS Office of Public Relations (2109 Newton Drive NE, Covington, GA 30014) by the end of the school day on November 20, 2014.

Designs may be submitted as paintings, drawings, marker, etc. and should be at least size 5”x7” or larger. Students should include their name, school, and grade on the back of the submitted artwork. (Please don’t use marker or dark pen, which could bleed through to the artwork on the front). Artwork will not be returned.

In order to participate, parents or guardians should complete a student participation form, which can be found on the NCSS website at One winning design will be selected by Superintendent Fuhrey and the winner will be notified by December 1, 2014.

“We have many talented artists in our district,” said Fuhrey. “I’m looking forward to seeing what they create. I’m very excited about featuring one of our student’s creative works on the district’s annual holiday card. I think it’s only fitting that the school district’s official holiday card showcase the talent we have in our school system.”
