Dobbins ARB 2022 Greeting Card Contest

Greetings Dobbins ARB community!

The holiday season is right around the corner. Many of us associate this time of year with Santa Claus, Christmas Trees, colorful lights, cookies & milk, and fireplaces with hot cocoa. Others associate this time of year with their faith. While others feel that this time of year is all about spending time with friends and family. Well, we want to see and feel what you love about the holiday season. Dobbins Force Support Squadron (MWR) is hosting a Giant Holiday Greeting Card Contest.

We want you to visualize what this time of year means to you. And put that vision on a giant greeting card (plywood). The good news is…the teams that make the best cards will earn a gift card. The first place team will win a $200 gift card. Second place will win a $100 gift card. And the third place team will earn a $50 gift card.
