Spread More Holiday Joy! Make The Cover of The City’s Christmas Card
PORT COQUITLAM, BC – Nov. 22, 2021… Once again Port Coquitlam is inviting children and youth tohelp spread more cheer this holiday season by submitting holiday-themed artwork by Dec. 5.
Last year over 50 pieces of artwork were submitted and displayed in various areas of the City and the cover of the City’s Christmas card. Like last year, the artwork will be displayed on the cover of the annual Mayor and Council holiday cards sent to key stakeholders, volunteers and community groups in December. The City once again, will be sending these cards to all seniors living in Port Coquitlam long-term care homes with a personalized message from Mayor and Council.
The submitted artwork will also be posted on the City’s website, social media and outdoor signage throughout the holiday season. A digital version of the cards with the selected artwork will be available for free download on the city website by Dec. 10 for residents to print and share with loved ones.
“The holidays are a special time of the year for many people and by displaying uplifting artwork on our Christmas card and around the City, really helps to brighten and spread additional good cheer in our community,” Port Coquitlam Mayor Brad West said. “This time of year, everyone’s talking about holiday spirit and the kids really know how to bring it to life and celebrate the joy of the holiday season. I look forward to seeing what the kids come up with this year.”
The artwork should include holiday and winter-themed positive messages and be submitted by Dec. 5 to portcoquitlam.ca/artwork. The submissions must be high-quality jpeg, png, gif or PDF’s of drawings, paintings, crafts, handwritten notes or other forms of expression. The cards are seven inches wide by five inches high.
The project continues to build on inspiring and providing encouraging messages by reinforcing community spirit – PoCo proud which features children’s artwork on signs, billboards and online.
