Enter the JVC Creative Greeting Card Contest for a chance to have your design featured on JVC’s community notecards!

The winning designs will be printed on note cards that will include the winner’s name and a brief bio on the back. The note cards will be available to the community for purchase and proceeds will support the work of Jewish Volunteer Connection, a program of The Associated whose mission is to engage volunteers to meet vital community needs and live with purpose through meaningful service.

To enter your artwork, create an original design that best depicts one of the following prompts:

  • How can I make a difference in the world?
  • What is the change I would like to see in the world?
  • How does it feel to help?

Designs can be drawn free hand or created on the computer. Designs featuring photographs cannot be considered at this time.


Each winner will receive a gift card PLUS one set of 12 note cards and a framed print of their design.
