Roman Gorsline was selected as the winner of McNamara's holiday card contest.

Gorsline's design featured a Rockford-symbolic Christmas tree, including ornaments of Rockford IceHogs mascot Hammy, the Coronado, a Hard Rock casino guitar and more.

It also features Rockford native and 2019 NBA champion Fred VanVleet flying above the tree.

Judges received more than 130 works of art for the contest, which allowed elementary and middle school students in the Rockford area to submit their designs.
