The TWIG organization at Nationwide Children's Hospital is again on the hunt for children's artwork to feature in its holiday card collection!

From now through Sept. 12, any child 16 and younger can enter an original holiday-themed drawing or painting by mailing it to: Nationwide Children's Hospital Foundation, Attn: TWIG Holiday Card Contest, P.O. Box 16810, Columbus, OH 43216-6810.

Along with the artwork, include a statement with: name of artist, age of artist, name of parent/guardian, mailing address, phone number, email address, and if the child has been a patient of Nationwide Children's Hospital. If so, feel free to briefly share your family's story (but you don't have to, and it's not necessary for the artist to have been a patient in order to enter).

Two winning entries will be selected and notified by Sept. 16, and all non-winning entries can be picked up at the hospital after that date. The winning entries will be reproduced and available for sale beginning Oct. 1 at All proceeds benefit the hospital.
