Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest
Dear Brother Knights:
We would like to invite your child to take part in the Knights of Columbus “Keep Christ in Christmas” poster contest for all boys and girls from ages 5 through 14. By engaging the talents of our young people, we hope they will come to a deeper understanding of the true meaning of Christmas, and that their artwork will bring others to remember Christ in Christmas (see sample to the right).
The contest will be conducted locally with winning entries advancing through district/regional and state competitions to the international level. The winning entries will serve as the basis for a series of international “Keep Christ in Christmas” posters, with creative credit going to the artists. Winners in our local contest will win $25 for first place, $15 for second place and $10 for third place.
The Knights of Columbus is one of the country’s largest charitable organizations, with members donating more than $1.6 billion to charitable and benevolent causes and giving more than 700 million hours of volunteer service in the last decade. Among the many public services Knights provide is their long-standing “Keep Christ in Christmas” program, which features faith-based local events and public service announcements.
Attached is a poster contest entry form. There is no limit to how many posters a child may submit, but each poster must be accompanied by a completed entry form. Please follow the instructions on the entry form regarding the rules and the judging.
Posters are due no later than 8:00 p.m. on Monday, December 18, 2017.
Someone will be in person to collect your posters at the Knights of Columbus hall (located behind the school) on the following dates:
Saturday, December 16, 2017 after the 5:30 p.m. mass from 6:30 p.m.–7:00 p.m. at the K of C Hall
