United Way in the Fraser Valley is looking for some creative kids to take part in an art contest.

The local branch is designing thank-you cards to send to its partners and they need the help of young artists to help make it possible.

United Way is inviting all Fraser Valley kids in elementary and middle school to enter its “Hi Neighbour” card-making contest where kids are being asked to show what they love about their neighbourhood.

“Draw a picture showing what you love about where you live, and your artwork may be featured on our cards,” the poster reads.

To enter, post a photo of your design on the United Way of the Lower Mainland Facebook page and keep the original, or mail it to: United Way in the Fraser Valley, P207-33355 Bevan Ave., Abbotsford, B.C., V2S 0E7.

Designs are due on April 15.
