Hospital’s Christmas card contest now open

SHERIDAN — Sheridan Memorial Hospital is once again seeking a design for its 2019 Christmas card. The hospital will accept entries from third- through fifth-grade students in Sheridan County. Artwork provided by students will be judged by a committee and the overall winner’s design will be used on the card sent out in December 2019.

The winner’s name will be printed on the back side of the Christmas Card. In addition to recognition on the card, the winner will receive a $50 cash prize. All entries will be displayed in the hospital lobby (space permitting) throughout the Christmas season.

The theme of this year’s card is: The Birth of Jesus, or you might know it as The Nativity Story. Please design your artwork with this idea in mind. Artwork must fit into the box outlined on page two of the entry form and should not be folded.

Artwork must be an original creation of the child and not mechanically or electronically generated. Artwork should also be in color (markers, crayons, paint, etc.)

Those submitting entries should ensure the child’s name is neatly printed on the back side of the artwork and the entry form is signed by a parent or guardian and submitted with the child’s art. Only one entry allowed per child.

Entries are due Nov. 26 and can be mailed or dropped off at the main entrance of Sheridan Memorial Hospital, located at 1401 W. Fifth St. They may also be dropped off at the hospital’s downtown location at 61 S. Gould St.
