The Catholic Spirit invites young artists in the archdiocese to participate in a poster contest with the theme: “I will keep the Christmas spirit alive all year long by . . . .”
The completed sentence must appear on the front of an 8-and-a-half-by-11-inch poster.
Artists may use any media. Strong colors with a lot of contrast reproduce better than soft pastels in the newspaper.
Entries will be judged on:
- Originality and artistic ability.
- Interpretation of the theme.
- Newspaper reproduction quality.
A first-place prize of $50 will be awarded for one poster in each category: grades three and under, grades four through six, grades seven through nine, and grades 10 through 12.
Winning entries will be published in The Catholic Spirit’s Christmas edition, Dec. 22.
