Hawthorne's Gavin Wasco Wins McHugh Holiday Card Contest

Each year since 2006, James McHugh Construction Company has asked District 205 elementary school students to design a holiday construction card which McHugh uses for the cover of their annual holiday card. This is completely voluntary project.

The school with the winning artwork always receives a $500 check from McHugh and the winning artist is also honored by McHugh Vice President Dave Bartolai (a D205 Alum). The winner receives copies of his/her card and a personalized hardhat, along with a few other cool prizes, and the class receives goodies as well.


This year, Hawthorne fifth grader Gavin Wasco, son of Christopher and Susan Wasco, drew the winning design. His card/video from McHugh’s visit to Hawthorne is posted below.
