DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Nothing captures the holiday spirit like a child. And that’s why for its 2016 holiday cards,  Daytona Beach International Airport tapped into the creativity of local school children.

The airport asked schools around Volusia County to submit student-created holiday designs geared toward aviation and the holiday season for potential use on its 2016 holiday cards. New Smyrna Beach Middle School’s art class answered the call, submitting designs from 25 students. From the submissions, airport staff chose four to be featured on the cards. 

Winning students were Emily Laescher Wright, eighth grade; Juliette Betancur, seventh grade; Kyla Kaelker, sixth grade; and Carsin Linker,  sixth grade. The four winning students will receive a lunch and airport tour. All participating students will receive a gift bag from Daytona BeachInternational Airport.
