'Keep Christ in Christmas' poster contest
Suffield - posted Nov, 21 2013
SUFFIELD - The Suffield Knights of Columbus Council #6281 is inviting area boys and girls, ages 5 through 14, to participate in the organization's international Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest. By engaging the creative talents and imaginations of our young people, the Knights of Columbus hope youth will come to a deeper understanding of the true, spiritual meaning of Christmas. The contest will be conducted locally with winning entries advancing to the district and then to state, national and international levels. Three prizes of $25 each will be awarded for the first-place finishers of the local contest in each age group (5 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to14). The winning entries will serve as the basis for a series of new Christmas posters that encourage a deeper understanding of the holiday. Posters must be submitted by Dec. 20, to P.O. Box 184 Suffield, CT 06078, or can be dropped-off at the rectory office of Sacred Heart Church, Mountain Road, Suffield. The poster must be 11" by 17" with the child's name and age written on the back of the poster. Posters will be judged on slogan, visuals and overall impact. Any questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
