With the holidays just around the corner, Oakville Mayor Rob Burton is asking students for their help in designing his 2018 Holiday Card.

Young, budding artists are being encouraged to send an original piece of art that depicts a Christmas scene or event in the Town of Oakville.

Two winning submissions will be chosen – one from the Grade 1- 5 level and one from the Grade 6 – 8 level.

Each entry must be accompanied by an entry form (download and print by visiting www.Oakville.ca/Mayor) completed and signed by a parent/guardian of the artist. Remember to include contact information including the name and age of the artist.

Original entries must be submitted in the form of a drawing, sketch or painting and meet the following requirements:

  • Minimum size of original artwork – 4” x 6”. Maximum size of original artwork – 8.5” x 11”.
  • Acceptable materials include paper or canvas. DO NOT FOLD.

Finished artwork, accompanied with a signed entry form and signed consent form, can be submitted in person at ServiceOakville or by regular mail to:

Lisa Wedmann
Mayor’s Office
1225 Trafalgar Road,
Oakville, ON
L6H 0H3

Mailed entries must be received before the submission deadline.

Copies of these entry details and more entry forms are available at ServiceOakville just inside the main entrance at Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road and all town facilities.

Submission Deadline: Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at 5 p.m.

Mayor’s office staff review the submissions. The Mayor Burton then selects the winners.

The two pieces of art will appear on the mayor’s e-card, which is sent to friends, family, colleagues and e-newsletter subscribers, while a collection of the others submissions will be on display in the North Atrium at Town Hall.

Last year the Mayor’s office received more than 30 submissions. Sally Wang, a Grade 5 student and Cindy Zhang, a Grade 7 student, were the chosen winners.
