hallmark contest

Hallmark is trying to find the funniest card creator in America with their "Your Funny*ness" contest. Send Hallmark a card, any card, as long as it's funny and original. Eighteen finalists will have their 15 minutes of fame when their cards are printed and sold to the public -- both at Hallmark.com/you and in more than 3,500 participating Hallmark Gold Crown stores! They also will win $250.

Deadline is March 23, students can go to www.hallmark.com/you to upload the card design. Finalists will be selected and announced on April 14. America's choice for the Grand Prize winner gets another $1,000 cash and a trip to Chicago to spend a weekend with Second City! Free tickets, a walking tour, a private workshop...and of course their concept on a Hallmark card sold in more than 3,500 participating Hallmark Gold Crown stores.
