Christmas Poster Contest Winners

| December 19, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Catholic Spirit asked youths in grades one to 12 to create Christmas posters by completing the phrase, “The ornament on my family Christmas tree I like best is …” and then drawing a picture. The 208 entries came from across the archdiocese and were judged by a panel of Catholic Spirit staff members, who chose winners in four categories: grades1-3, grades 4-6, grades 7-9 and grades 10-12.

Entries were judged for artistic skill, creativity and reproducibility.

Each winner receives a $50 Visa gift card.

New this year, adults and youth were invited to finish the phrase above and submit a 200 word essay about their favorite ornament. A selection of the 103 essays submitted is printed here.
