Dec. 1, 2017 - Holiday Greeting Card Contest Results


In the annual holiday greeting card contest sponsored by the Plano ISD Education Foundation, almost 1,000 Plano ISD student from PreK through twelfth grade entered original artwork reflecting this year's theme Unfold the Season.

From these many beautiful entries, four finalists were selected by a panel of judges, and from these four finalists, a winner was named. Each finalist will receive a $50 award from the Education Foundation, and the winner will receive a $100 award. At the December 12 board meeting, certificates will be presented to the winner and finalists. The winning artwork by Robinson Middle School student Saher Kamal is the cover art for the 2017 Plano ISD and Education Foundation holiday greeting card, and the three additional finalists' artwork is printed on the back of the greeting card. 

Congratulations to these students and their teachers.
