Very different options. The puppy is such a cute one!

Many different mediums used. So great to see the variety!

The dog one! AWWW! Pups always get me.

Violet August 8, 2017 at 10:22 am

the squirrel one is really cute! i like that it is done on a computer. looks cool!

Delilah August 8, 2017 at 10:25 am

I had to zoom in on that one of the pine trees. It really grabbed my eye. What a pretty card it would make!

Dino August 8, 2017 at 10:32 am

This scholarship is a good program for students. The cost of college is astronomical. What a huge help this money would be for a lucky applicant.

Christine August 11, 2017 at 10:18 am

I am drawn most to the pine trees on the white background. It is very serene and well done.

Jada August 11, 2017 at 10:22 am

The dog is my choice!!!! Reminds me of the one I had growing up.

Alex August 11, 2017 at 10:23 am

The squirrel is a good one. They are all really great though.

Gerry August 11, 2017 at 3:21 pm

Wow I love Entry 145!! I’d buy that in a heartbeat!

Tom August 11, 2017 at 3:22 pm

Always such talent this competition showcases. Congrats to all the finalists this year.

Whinny August 11, 2017 at 3:23 pm

Is 117 a drawing?! So unique and understated, what a cool concept for a card.

Pauline August 11, 2017 at 3:24 pm

Is the girl in the yellow dress a birthday card? Seems kind of somber.

Edna August 11, 2017 at 3:25 pm

Entry 94 looks like a Dalek. Anyone else think so?

Andy August 11, 2017 at 3:26 pm

What a cute puppy on that one RoundOne Winner card! That would be a great surprise indeed.

Sam August 11, 2017 at 3:26 pm

Wow the scenery ones are really great!

Marcy August 11, 2017 at 3:26 pm

Every year I am impressed! Congratulations! You all deserved it!

Quinn August 11, 2017 at 3:27 pm

That deer card is so cool! I’d love to see it in color!

Peggy August 11, 2017 at 3:27 pm

The squirrel has me dying laughing! Such a silly entry.

Carrie August 14, 2017 at 12:22 pm

The pine trees have a dream-like quality, very peaceful. A change from in your face red & green!

Dan August 14, 2017 at 12:23 pm

From the looks of this first round, there ought to be lots of really good art submitted before the end of the contest. Looking good!

Vi August 14, 2017 at 12:27 pm

Is that a photograph, the trees by a lake? Very pretty. I’d like that for a sympathy card, or just a note card.

Karli August 14, 2017 at 3:11 pm

That photo by the lake is so soothing, calming, so pretty. It’s my favorite.

Yvette August 14, 2017 at 3:13 pm

The cute dog in the Santa hat gets my vote! More dog cards, please.

Donna August 14, 2017 at 3:15 pm

You’re off to a very good start. Let’s hope a lot more potential winners come through once school starts and the art teachers encourage the students to enter.

Geri August 14, 2017 at 3:19 pm

So cute – that squirrel is going to bury an ornament instead of an acorn. He’ll be disappointed in January when he’s hungry!

Jamie August 14, 2017 at 3:21 pm

It’s wonderful, what your company does for students. The $10,000 is a huge benefit to the winner.
I noticed you also produce cards from finalist designs. I’d be thrilled if I had a card in your catalog.

Chrisleen August 14, 2017 at 3:24 pm

Who can resist that cute pup under the tree? There’s a lot more talent in the schools, I’m sure. It’s rewarding when your talent is appreciated.

Scott August 15, 2017 at 11:52 am

Very nice entries. I’m encouraging my daughter to design a card because she is an art student and she could really use that scholarship award money.

Marilyn August 15, 2017 at 11:56 am

I look forward to seeing these cards every year. I’m so glad your company does this. The winning card for 2016 is just perfect! A nostalgic country scene, complete with barn and sleigh. I can’t wait to send out these cards.

Margaret August 15, 2017 at 11:59 am

How can you resist that cute little dog under the tree? He’s adorable!

Emily August 16, 2017 at 1:54 pm

Congratulations to the Round 1 winners! I’ll be watching all the rounds and voting for my favorites. Good Luck everyone.

Tammy August 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm

Art was always so hard for me when I was in school so I appreciate all the hard work that goes into the art for the contest. I’m glad the winner and some finalists have the pleasure of seeing their artwork produced.

Josie August 17, 2017 at 10:56 am

Agreed Margaret! Definitely couldn’t resist a card with a puppy!

Luann August 17, 2017 at 10:57 am

The entries are stunning each and every year. It is too bad they can’t all be turned into a card because they are impressive and it appears so much time and effort went into the art.

Sofia August 17, 2017 at 11:02 am

The evergreen trees amongst the snow – winner right there! Would look gorgeous on a card.

Bobby August 22, 2017 at 3:42 pm

I think your company is wonderful for sponsoring this contest each year. The students are very creative.
I wish I was still in college so I could enter!

Drew August 22, 2017 at 3:43 pm

The picture of the pines in the mist is a pretty design. Instead of the bright red & green we’re so used to at Christmas, this has a peaceful feeling.

Madeline August 22, 2017 at 3:46 pm

I hope these talented students keep up their love of art, win or lose in the contest. I wish them all good luck!

Sara August 24, 2017 at 11:18 am

Turning a year older? Let’s have some humor. That crazy, tilted cake is a little bit of dark humor!

Talia August 24, 2017 at 11:19 am

It’s hard to tell – is that the capitol in the background in that photo? It’s a pretty picture.

Dianne August 24, 2017 at 11:21 am

The finalists are so good. I’m looking forward to all the rounds and all the creative art.

Ajanaye Fleming September 13, 2017 at 1:28 pm

My favorite is the lady in the yellow dress with the balloons afloat. Great job to all participants.

Tovah September 20, 2017 at 9:58 am

Everybody has a favorite, I’m sure. I can’t decide between the cute little puppy under the tree and the comical squirrel hanging on to the shiny ornament as if it were a huge acorn! I’m looking forward to seeing the next round of finalists.

Matt February 24, 2018 at 5:17 pm

The pine trees are absolutely sublime. Beautiful work!

bianca April 24, 2018 at 5:12 pm
