The Uniontown Postcard Contest asked Uniontown Area High School students to submit postcard designs with the theme “What makes Uniontown, Uniontown?” The contest closed on November 23rd with entries from 28 students. Faculty and staff of Uniontown Area School District voted on the designs, ultimately selecting the top five designs to be printed and sold throughout the Uniontown area. Proceeds from the postcard sales and sponsors benefit the Uniontown Class of 2023.
The goal of the contest was multifold:
- Encourage students to view their community as a unique destination with a storied past and future
- Give students an opportunity to share their creative skills with the public
- Offer a physical token that represents Uniontown to residents and visitors alike
- Fundraise for the Uniontown Area High School senior class (Class of 2023)
