Attention kids of all ages: now is the time to start thinking about the holidays. Close your eyes, conjure up an image that makes you think of winter and grab a marker. The Mountain Xpress holiday art contest is officially open.
Send us your artistic interpretation of the holidays, anything from snowflakes to Christmas trees, menorahs to kinara. The only requirement is that you live in WNC and you’re under the age of 110 (yes, adults are invited too). The cream of the crop will be published in the holiday issues of the Mountain Xpress.
The deadline is Friday, Nov. 16.
Works must fit onto a 8 ½” x 11” piece of paper. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number, age, parent or guardian’s name and school. Watercolor, acrylic, crayons and colored pencils are best for print (no graphite pencil, please). If you’d like your artwork returned, include a self addressed stamped envelope.
Mail your original art on a holiday theme to the Mountain Xpress:

Or come by the office and hand-deliver it to the A&E office. We’d love to meet you!
