Representative Beck to Hold a Holiday Card Design Contest
Winner’s Design to be Placed on Constituent Greeting Cards

Warren County- Ohio Representative Pete A. Beck (R-Mason) and the Mason Area Arts Council are collaborating to present a holiday card contest, with the winning design to be sent from the office of Representative Beck.

The theme of the card should encompass the beauty of Warren County. Artists are encouraged to use their own creative license to showcase the district through their artwork.

“I thought this would be a nice way for artists to express the beauty of the cities and townships that I serve here in House District 67,” Beck said.

The winning entry will receive $500; second prize will be $250; and third prize will be $100. The winning artist will receive credit on the back of the card. An estimated 500 cards will be printed and mailed to the constituents of House District 67. The winning artwork will also hang in Representative Beck’s office at the Statehouse.

Artists are encouraged to submit photography, paintings, drawings or mixed media that would be suitable for printing. Original artwork should not exceed 11”x17”.

All entries are due on Monday, Nov. 23 and should be mailed or dropped off to 4900 Parkway Drive, Suite 150, Mason, OH 45040. Winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 30. For more information and contest guidelines call 513-573-0007 or visit
