As the overall winner, Lorelei receives 30 printed cards featuring her artwork to mail to family and friends, and a $50 gift certificate to Michaels craft supply store. Her design is featured on WEC’s annual Christmas card and on this issue of Alabama Living.

In addition to the winners shown here, judges selected a winner from each school represented in the competition and awarded each of them a $10 gift card.
