Gift for Education Cards Art Contest

The Needham Education Foundation is excited to announce an art contest! We are looking for a new design for our Gift for Education cards. These cards have long served as a perfect way to acknowledge and thank a teacher, during the holiday season and at the end of the school year. 

Our inaugural art contest is open to all Needham Public elementary school students. The winning design will be used on the actual gift cards!

How to Participate:

  • Draw a colorful picture that creatively answers the question: What is your favorite thing about school?
  • Students can use markers, crayons, pencils and/or paints.
  • The design should be prepared horizontally on an 8 ½ x 11 paper.
  • To enter the submission into the contest, please take a picture of the artwork and email it to: Include in the e-mail the following information: child’s name, grade, school, and parent’s contact info.
  • NOTE: It’s important to retain the original artwork. If your child’s design is selected, the original will be needed for reproduction purposes.

The 2019 contest has ended. The winner will be notified by November 18th. Thank you for participating!

One image will be chosen by the NEF Board of Directors for recognition on our 2019- 2020 Gift for Education cards. We will notify all those who participate of our final decision by November 18th. After Thanksgiving, the NEF Gift for Education cards will be available for purchase at a price of $10 per card online and at several local stores in town. All proceeds from sales of the Gift for Education cards will go directly back into funding innovative and engaging programs throughout the school district.
