Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight is pleased to announce that Sophia Justice of Wallace Elementary is the first-place winner of the 2014 Mayor’S Christmas Card Contest.
Mayor Goodnight introduced Sophia along with each of the finalists during a press conference this morning at City Hall. Sophia’s design will be the official Christmas card of the mayor, and it will be sent to hundreds of individuals, including local, state and federal officials.
Sophia’s festive design features an outline of the state of Indiana in green and set against a red background. A holiday star adorned with candy canes denotes Kokomo on the map while three snowmen dance across the Hoosier landscape.
The annual contest, open to all fourth grade students in Kokomo Schools, is a long-standing tradition between Kokomo Schools, Mayor’s office and the Kokomo Community Arts Commission.
Local students submitted nearly 100 designs this year. Kokomo Community Arts Commission members selected the finalists and forwarded those to Mayor Goodnight for his final selection.
