ART AND POETRY CONTEST
High school students in Brooklyn and Queens are invited to
share their creative talents by submitting an original poem up to 250 words, or original piece of artwork, no smaller than
8 1/2’’ x 11’’, reflecting the theme, “Keep Christ in Christmas.” Entries will be judged
on effectiveness in conveying theme, innovation, and overall impact.
In regard to artistic entries, I cannot emphasize enough that
a student's work must be an original concept, design and execution, and may not violate any copyright laws. It may not be
copied or reproduced from any existing photo, painting, graphic, advertisement or any other work produced by another person.
Cash prizes will be awarded
to the top three entries in each category, totaling six winners in all, with a first prize of $200. All participants will
receive a red and green “Keep Christ in Christmas” bracelet. Winning entries will be published in The Tablet’s
Dec. 20 issue.
Entry deadline: Friday, Dec. 12 at 5 p.m. One entry per student.
Students may submit their poem/artwork, along with their name,
address, telephone number, Youth Ministry Program and school, to:
Keep Christ in Christmas Contest, The Tablet, 310 Prospect
Park West, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11215.
