Greta Jarecki wins our Christmas Card contest

One of the most enjoyable projects we initiate each year is an art contest for students to design our Christmas Card. 

We invite schools to participate in the contest and this year we had 566 entries from classes all over the region — including Chelan, Quincy, Bridgeport, Okanogan, Rock Island, Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. There were also entries from kids who are home schooled.

Our judges selected 21 finalists and employees voted on their favorite design. The winner this year was Greta Jarecki, a 5th grader at St Joseph Catholic School. She created a three-dimensional Christmas tree using rolled up pieces of newspaper with lettering cut out from the pages of the paper. 

Jarecki said it took her about three hours of work to finish the work. It's one of the more inventive designs we've seen in our years doing these contests. 

On Monday, we surprised her class with a pizza party. We send out our company card to about 900 people in North Central Washington. 

Congratulations, Greta.
