SUBJECT: Organizational Holiday Greeting Card Competition

1. The 96th Services Squadron is sponsoring the annual organizational greeting card competition
during the 2008 holiday season.

2. During this event, organizations are encouraged to erect holiday greeting signs/cards for
outdoor display. The displays are to be made of one or two 4’ X 8’ plywood sheets, decorated
appropriately with the unit’s holiday message to base personnel and visitors.

3. Stakes will be placed in designated locations on the west end of Eglin Blvd. At each stake,
participants will erect their “life sized” greeting card. Units may erect no more than two
signs/cards based on space availability starting 10 Nov 08. Displays must be removed by 1600
on 5 Jan 09.

4. A panel of impartial judges will evaluate the greeting cards for theme, originality and
workmanship. Please see attached rules for details. Judging will be held on Wednesday, 26 Nov
08. Winners will be presented with cash prizes in the amounts following: first ($300), second
($200), third ($100) and honorable mention ($50). Awards presentation will be conducted at
Eglin Chapel 2 during the annual base tree lighting ceremony.

5. Units are required to contact the Eglin Arts & Crafts Center at 850-882-5467 to indicate their
intent to participate in the competition. Point of contact is Ms. Tina Hurtado. Rules must be
read and complied with to be eligible for competition. In addition, the name and contact number
of a designated representative and alternate for the organization is required. All entrants must be
registered by COB on 26 Nov 08.

6. I encourage all units to share their holiday spirit and unit pride by participating and making
the annual organizational greeting card competition a fun and enjoyable event for all, ushering in
another joyous and meaningful holiday season.
