NORTH LIBERTY– University of Iowa Community Credit Union (UICCU) members receive a very personal greeting each season.
Each year, the Credit Union holds its annual holiday art contest to gather artwork by local students. The winner's work is featured on the greeting cards sent to business contacts and Credit Union members. All of the art teachers in the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) are invited to submit work by their students.
