The winner will receive a full color poster of the drawing, and the drawing will be on display throughout the neighborhood.

Either print out this form or get a copy from Will Green at Salvation Army, Becky Green at Mentoring Positives, Deenah Givens at Goodman Center or Fabiola Hamdan at Joining Forces for Families, and have your child draw and color what he or she likes about our community. It can be anything! (One entry per child, please.)

The deadline for submitting a drawing is July 28th, Deadline Extended! Drawings are due by August 18th. All information must be included on the form in order to be accepted. Please coordinate drop off to one of the folks mentioned above, or mail to the WPNA office at 414 Rethke Ave, Madison, WI 53704.
