Save the Children's Valentine's Day Card Contest


Valentine's Day Card Contest


Activities to support contest







The AFT is proud to partner with Save the Children (STC) on its campaign to end child poverty in the United States. For its 2010 campaign, Valentine's Day cards designed by students that illustrate this year's theme, Uniting a Generation, will be given as a gift with a donation to benefit Save the Children's efforts to end child poverty in the U.S.


One of your student's cards could be selected for the campaign!


Students are asked to design Valentine's Day cards using the heart image as a symbol for such values as compassion, courage, honesty, loyalty and responsibility. Students will then vote online for the best designs, and the five most popular designs will be made into cards that will be offered as a gift with every donation to benefit Save the Children programs to end child poverty in the United States.


Students across the country are encouraged to participate. Cards must be submitted by the student's school and will be voted on by children across the country. Each school may only submit one entry for each of the following grade categories: PreK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-10, 11-12. The top vote getters in each of five categories will be turned into the STC Valentine's Day cards and the winning artists will receive a $500 savings bond. The student who designs the card with the most votes overall will have an opportunity to meet Save the Children's spokesperson, Julianne Moore. For complete lists of rules, prizes and information on how to enter the contest, go to:


We encourage all schools to get involved in this campaign and have provided activities for all grade levels to help you engage your students around the important values and virtues that are needed to help end child poverty in the U.S. and that will help all children build resiliency and be successful in school and in life.
