VITAC and WPSD Celebrate 28th Annual Holiday Art Contest

by: David Titmus

VITAC is proud to celebrate 28 years of holiday partnership with the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (WPSD) and its talented students and teachers.

For nearly three decades, WPSD students have created artwork around a holiday theme, with their art prominently featured on VITAC’s annual holiday cards to clients, colleagues, and associates.

This year, students created artwork featuring a theme of “Elf on the Shelf.” We received many creative, festive submissions, which then were shared with VITAC employees across the country, who, as in years’ past, were charged with the very difficult task of selecting their favorites.

And since we’d hate to be Grinches, we thought we’d let you feast your eyes on all of the students’ designs.

The winners will be announced at a special program at WPSD next week. Winners will receive a monetary prize and their artwork will be showcased on VITAC’s annual holiday card.

The Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf — part of the largest comprehensive center for deaf education in Pennsylvania —is a non-profit, tuition free school that offers students an all-inclusive communication/language environment. Founded in 1869, WPSD provides quality educational services and a complete extracurricular program to deaf and hard-of-hearing children from birth through grade 12.
