Holiday Card Contest

The VLA/Brown Rudnick Holiday Card Contest

Brown Rudnick and Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts of Massachusetts (VLA) strongly believe that the arts play an integral part in every student’s secondary education. Brown Rudnick and the VLA developed its Holiday Card Contest in 2005 to provide students with an opportunity to develop and showcase their creativity. This contest is made possible through a generous grant from the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp. and with support from the Brown Rudnick Center for the Public Interest.

The Holiday Card Contest is now closed for entries. Winners will be announced in early December. We received over 320 entries from a dozen Boston Public Schools. Thank you to the participating artists and their teachers and schools!

All winning students will receive cash prizes and art supplies, along with a certificate of achievement, to be presented at the award party at Brown Rudnick on December 5th. All teachers, participating artists, and their families are invited.
