VITAC and WPSD Partner for 31 Years of Holiday Cheer

For more than three decades, VITAC has partnered with students and teachers at the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (WPSD) to create our annual holiday card to clients, colleagues, and associates. And we’re thrilled to celebrate 31 years of this holiday tradition in 2021!

Each year, students from the school create artwork around a holiday theme, and send their creative and colorful designs to our team here at VITAC. This year, students created artwork that incorporated snow globes into each image.

We received lots of festive submissions – winter scenes with elves, snowmen, and happy homes, Santa tip-toeing through a living room delivering gifts, and even a devilishly detailed appearance by Krampus!

We didn’t think it was fair to keep them all to ourselves, so we wanted to offer a peek below at all of the cool pieces that the students produced!

The artwork was shared with all of our VITAC employees, who, as in previous years, were charged with the very difficult task of selecting their favorites. The design with the most votes will grace the cover of our 2021 holiday card.

The Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf is a non-profit, tuition-free school that offers students an all-inclusive communication/language environment. Founded in 1869, WPSD provides quality educational services and a complete extracurricular program to deaf and hard-of-hearing children from birth through grade 12.
