by October 3, 2017

VUMC Voice, the new online magazine for the Medical Center community, is looking for Halloween art from the children and grandchildren of employees, students and volunteers.

All children between the ages of 4 and 12 are eligible to enter, and the best drawings will be selected by a panel of VUMC judges and will be featured in the days leading up to Halloween on the VUMC Voice website.

The pictures can be as scary as a haunted house or as sweet as a full-size candy bar, but all must relate to Halloween.

The drawings are to be the recent work of the children or grandchildren of current VUMC employees, students or volunteers.

Enter the picture by digitally photographing it with a smartphone or camera, and emailing the photo to Please put “Halloween picture” in the subject line.

Along with the photo, please include your name and department, along with the artist’s name, age and relationship (son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter) to the person sending in the entry. There is a limit of two entries per child, and all pictures must be submitted by noon on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017.

For judging purposes, there will be two divisions, one for ages 4-6 and the other for ages 7-12.

The pictures selected will be posted to VUMC Voice, along with the names and ages of the winners, and the name and department of the proud parent or grandparent.
