Loons seeking youth to design the perfect holiday card

By Great Lakes Loons | November 1, 2012 5:17 AM ET

MIDLAND, MI - Hey Kids! The Great Lakes Loons need your help this holiday season. The Loons are having a contest for students in grades K-5 to help promote artistic creativity. We want you to design the cover of our official holiday card!

The winning design will appear on the card that is sent to our friends and business partners. The winner will receive an autographed Loons baseball, four (4) box seats to a 2013 Loons game and the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the game.

All entries must be received at the Loons front office by Thursday, November 15, 2012.

Please include your name, address, age, grade and school name with your entry. Submissions should be designed landscape style on a standard piece of 8.5x11 unlined white paper. Drawings can include Lou E. Loon, Dow Diamond, holiday messaging, or anything else that is fitting for the winter season ahead.

Please send to or drop off your design at:

Dow Diamond
Attn: Holiday Card
825 E. Main Street
Midland, MI 48640

After selecting the winning card, the entries will be placed on display in the Loon Loft at Dow Diamond during December. The store reopens for the holidays on November 26th through December 21st. Loft hours on these dates will be weekdays from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The Loons ticket staff is currently taking orders for full-season, mini, and group ticket-packages for the 2013 season. The Great Lakes Loons are a seventh-year Single-A partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. For more information about the Loons, visit or call 989-837-BALL.
