Lily Cox, a seventh grader from View Ridge Middle School, is the first-place winner in the Superintendent’s Holiday Greeting Card Art Contest for the Ridgefield School District. Her artwork was selected by judges as the entry that best exemplifies “Holiday Magic,” this year’s contest theme.
Lily’s winning design will decorate the cover of the district’s holiday greeting card this year, which will be mailed out to school districts, public entities and private businesses on Ridgefield School District’s holiday mailing list. As the first-place winner, Lily receives a $50 cash award.

These entries were submitted by Estelle Blystone, a junior from Ridgefield High School; Anna Chapin, a second grader from South Ridge Elementary School; and Liam McAllister, a senior from Ridgefield High School. Each runner-up receives a $25 cash award for their winning design.
All four students will be recognized at the district’s regular school board meeting on Tuesday, December 11.
