Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Look Back Series – 2009’s Touching Thank You

In our newest entry into our Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Look-Back series, we wanted kick off the 3rd annual scholarships month by giving everyone a behind the scenes look at the amazingly creative and gracious way the winner, Lauren Ondreko, sent us her thanks after we let her know that she had won.

Lauren, who was the first high school student to win the scholarship contest, submitted a beautiful line drawing that featured all of the Christmas essentials like snowmen, presents, ornaments and more. It was a beautiful piece of artwork that to us, defined the spirit of Christmas and we felt was going to turn into a simply stunning Christmas card in our collection.

After Lauren had been told that she won the scholarship, she created handmade custom thank you cards that she sent to our office. It was a surprise to all of us when we received them and everyone in the office was touched by this beautiful gesture. The cards featured the same beautiful line work that made her scholarship entry be chosen as the winner. As if the beautiful drawing on the front wasn’t enough, on the inside of the thank you cards, Lauren wrote a very touching personal note thanking the company for selecting her as the winner.

This scholarship has been a source of many great moments and memories for us and this was definitely one of the best. These thank you cards made everyone in the office proud to be a part of something truly special and we hope that you enjoyed this glimpse into a moment that truly touched everyone in our company.
