VANCOUVER – Artists and photographers of all ages are sought for the design of the 2008 WSU Vancouver holiday cards. The contest will benefit the education of current WSU Vancouver students, with the $5 entry fees going toward the campus’ scholarship program.

The campus Office of Development and Alumni Relations sends an annual holiday card to all its donors and friends.

“We are looking for a holiday-themed photograph, watercolor painting, crayon drawing or sketch that we can incorporate into a card,” said Melissa Ray, development coordinator at WSU Vancouver, “and, of course, one which captures the Cougar pride of WSU Vancouver.”

Design selection will be based on creativity, incorporation of WSU Vancouver name and marks and capturing the holiday spirit.

The winning artist will be able to designate all of the funds generated from this contest for an already established scholarship fund at WSU Vancouver.

To submit a design, complete the online form link at and send with a design by Oct. 1.
