The winner and finalists of Mayor Francis Slay's annual Holiday Card Design Contest were honored today at a reception in City Hall in the Mayor's Office. Fourth-grade student Olivia Matthews from Kennard Classical Junior Academy submitted the winning design, which will be used as Mayor and Mrs. Slay's 2014 holiday e-cards.

"I'd like to thank all the students for submitting an entry to my Annual Holiday Card Design Contest," Mayor Slay said. "One of my favorite holiday traditions is going through the design entries, and every year, it's very difficult to narrow down the entries to the top 10. I congratulate Olivia for winning this year's contest. Mrs. Slay and I are proud to use her design on our 2014 holiday e-card."
