News Release

The Superintendent’s Christmas Card Contest is a longstanding holiday tradition within Beaufort County Schools.
Each year, the contest is open to a different grade level within the school system.
For the 2012 edition, it was the high schools’ turn to submit entries to compete for the front spot on the district’s annual Christmas card. Each school could submit up to three entries. All entries were displayed, without any identification visible, for the judges to select a winner.
The artist behind the 2012 card is Caitey Faughnan, a senior at Washington High School. She received a framed version of the postcards and her original art work, along with copies of the cards.
Chosen as honorable-mention entries were Brittany Ange, a sophomore, and Erica Alligood, a senior, at Washington High School.
Entries from Northside High School included Zebedee Barrow, ninth grad; Melissa Cutler, 12th grade; and Gabby Logan, 10th grade.
Southside High School entries came from Tiffany Denton, ninth grade; Allison Tallcott, 10th grade; and Alexis Preece, ninth grade.
Thanks to all artists who submitted entries. Congratulations on a job well done.
