Dates extended for Centennial Birthday Card Design Contest

  • Published

In honor of the 100th birthday of Scott AFB, Outdoor Recreation is calling all squadrons to explore their creativity and help us celebrate the Centennial Year by designing giant Birthday Cards, which will be displayed along Scott Drive.

Not only will the top winners receive bragging rights, but also FSS Gift Cards with values of $300, $250, $200 and $175!

Contest is open to all squadrons. Registration is required and has been extended through March 31. The first 60 squadrons to register will receive one free 4x4 sheet of plywood! All completed entries must be submitted to Outdoor Recreation by 4 p.m. on March 31. Birthday cards must be painted only. No additional construction of any kind allowed.

Birthday cards must include a Centennial Birthday theme incorporating items from the last 100 years of Scott AFB history and/or birthday wishes. Each card must clearly show the name of your squadron (only one card per squadron permitted). Outdoor Recreation will provide requirements and printed rules at time of plywood pick up.

All entries will be displayed along Scott Drive for public viewing. Photos of the cards will be placed on the Force Support website, The top three winners will be selected by judges.

The People’s Choice Award will be selected by the Scott AFB Community via online voting, beginning at 7 a.m. April 10 and ending at 5 p.m. April 14. The People’s Choice winner will receive a $200 FSS Gift Card.

People can vote once a day, as many days during the voting time frame they like. All votes identified as on-base votes will be automatically disqualified.
