VITAC and WPSD 25th Annual Art Contest Winners


This year marks the 25th anniversary of VITAC and the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf‘s annual holiday tradition. Every year, students from the school submit artistic interpretations of a holiday theme, and send them to our team here at VITAC headquarters, where the art is displayed for several days and employees vote for their favorites.

We choose multiple finalists and a grand prize winner, and recognize each with a certificate and cash prize during a presentation at the school’s December assembly. This year’s theme was “Furry Holiday.” The hand-drawn and painted art sure gave everyone at VITAC warm and fuzzy holiday feelings!

We’re happy to announce this year’s winners below. 

*Update 12/17: We had a wonderful time at WPSD’s holiday assembly! We’re proud to announce our grand prize winner, Samantha Gibbs! Samantha received a certificate, a cash prize, and holiday cards featuring her artwork to send to her family and friends. Congratulations!
