Additionally, all three received a family membership in the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art Foundation. The membership entitles the winners and their families to invitations to special museum events and discounts on classes, workshops and gift shop purchases.

A selection of submitted entries will be exhibited in the art museum's Young at Art Gallery, December 1 to December 31, as a feature of the 37th annual Holiday Forest exhibition. The cards produced as a part of this project are available in the art museum's gift shop or at the reception desk at City Hall. Packets of ten cards are $15.
