Neighbor Appreciation Day Student Art Contest Winners Selected

SEATTLE - The 12th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day is Saturday, February 11, 2006. The City encourages Seattle residents to say “thank you!” to those who have made their neighborhood a nicer, safer, place to live, work and play with a Neighborhood Appreciation Day greeting card.

One winner was chosen from over hundreds of entries. Michelle Pham, a fifth grader at Dunlap Elementary School in southeast Seattle, won the student art contest with her greeting card celebrating “neighborliness.” To view the winner’s art, the second and third place finishers, as well as the honorable mentions, please visit http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/appday/

A festive celebration for the 2005 Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting card student art contest winners will be held on Saturday, February 11. It will be at Ingraham High School, 1819 N. 135th Street, in north Seattle. The ceremony begins at noon.

Neighbor Appreciation Day greeting cards are available free to organizations and individuals throughout Seattle. The card is suitable for use throughout the year. If you would like to send cards to citizens in recognition of their special contributions to their neighborhoods, please contact Peter McGraw at 615-0950 or peter.mcgraw@seattle.gov and let him know how many you need. They are also available at all Neighborhood Service Centers and public libraries throughout Seattle.
