Poster contest: ‘I will keep the Christmas spirit alive all year by . . .’

| October 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

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.

Entries must be postmarked or dropped off at The Catholic Spirit offices by Friday, Dec. 14. Please include name, address, phone number, grade level and parish (include city).Mail to: The Catholic Spirit Christmas Contest, 244 Dayton Ave., St. Paul, MN 55102.
