Now that we've enjoyed our Thanksgiving meals and the following days of delicious leftovers, it’s time to put on our creative caps and kerchiefs for the next 22nd Century Media contest. 

Everyone loves to receive a thoughtful card, especially during the holiday season. Our editors are no different as we run out to the mailbox every day hoping for cheerful mail. With the return of the annual Holiday Greeting Card Contest, and as Santa Claus already knows, our staff has been very good this year. Why not reward them with your best entries?

We’ll be accepting submissions of holiday cards through Wednesday, Dec. 18. Entries will then be evaluated by the editorial team and winners will be selected, notified and handed grand prizes from local retailers.

We’ll be checking our mailing list (more than twice) this holiday season to collect holiday cards from readers in our coverage towns, Winnetka and Northfield. 


There are only a few rules:

1. One entry per family

2. Card must be from this holiday season

3. E-cards are accepted


So, this holiday season, don’t forget to add “award-winning holiday card” to your wish list. 

Please send your entries to Attn: Holiday Card Contest, 60 Revere Drive ST 888, Northbrook, IL, 60062, or email editor Megan Bernard at 

Entries are due Dec. 18 and winners will be printed in a future issue. Good luck and Happy Holidays!
