Tuttle Law Recognized at the Commissioner’s Business Recognition Awards
Posted on 06/25/2019
Mr. Tuttle Recognized at Commissioner's Business RecognitionMr. Tuttle is a local attorney in Vero Beach, Florida. In the early 90’s, Mr. Tuttle worked in a law firm in Brevard county, and heard of the need for programs and contests specifically for students with disabilities. After running the holiday card contest for 6 years in Brevard county, he moved to Indian River County in 2002, opened his own firm, and carried on the contest, officially naming it the “Tuttle Holiday Card Contest.” For the past 17 years, during the holiday season, hundreds of students have submitted their drawings to the “Tuttle Holiday Card Contest.” Each student pours their heart and talents into their artwork in hopes that it would be used to create a holiday card that Mr. Tuttle’s Law Firm will send to all of their clients and various community organizations.

Each year, when a student is chosen, they are presented with their framed holiday card artwork, a $25 gift card to the Vero Beach Book Center, and the pride in knowing that their artwork is featured on this very important holiday card that is received by over 2,500 individuals and organizations across the state of Florida. Not only does Mr. Tuttle recognize the winner of the contest, the second and third place winners, and the top four teachers with highest classroom participation in the contest with gift cards, EVERY student who enters the contest is recognized with a gift card to the Book Center.

In 2018, the “Tuttle Holiday Card Contest” had 102 entrants, and the winner was an extra special surprise. For the first time, due to the creative expression and collaboration on the artwork, the “Tuttle Holiday Card Contest” winner was an entire Pre-K class from Vero Beach Elementary School. Generously, Mr. Tuttle awarded every student in the class with a gift card to the bookstore, and presented their teacher, Ms. Mulchay-Ladyzhinsky, with her own gift card, and their framed artwork to be displayed in their classroom. Mr. Tuttle frames a second copy of the artwork for the walls of his law office, which are now covered in almost two decades of student success. We recognized Ms. Mulchay-Ladyzhinsky’s classroom at a Board meeting this year, while also recognizing Mr. Tuttle for his years of dedication and artistic inspiration to our students.
