Student designs Soldotna Police Department Christmas card

The Soldotna Police Department had a Christmas card contest this year and invited sixth-grade classes (last year’s Soldotna DARE graduates) to design the Department’s Christmas Card with a law enforcement theme. The principals from each school reviewed the entries and submitted a winner from their school for selection.

The entries were reviewed by Chief Peter Mlynarik officers and administrative staff, and the winning card that was chosen was submitted by Lila McKay from Soldotna Elementary. As the winner of the contest, her card was printed locally and mailed out as the department’s Christmas card. Lila was also rewarded with a $100 gift card from Fred Meyer, which was donated by officers and staff.
