“KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS” STUDENT ART CONTEST SEEKS FAITH THROUGH ART IN BROOKLYN AND QUEENS
The Tablet, the newspaper of the Diocese of Brooklyn, along with the Archbishop John Hughes Council of the Knights of Columbus located in the Dyker Heights section of Brooklyn, again will sponsor the “Keep Christ in Christmas” art contest this year, for students in grades 1-12, residing in Brooklyn and Queens.
The 2019 contest is encouraging students to express their faith through art by connecting the “Keep Christ in Christmas” theme with Deuteronomy Chapter 10: Verses 17-19: “For the Lord, your God, is the God of gods, the Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who has no favorites, accepts no bribes, who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and loves the resident alien, giving them food and clothing. So you too should love the resident alien, for that is what you were in the land of Egypt.”
There are no restrictions on size or art materials used, but the artwork must be presented in physical form. No video, audio, photocopy or email entry will be accepted. All entries must include the name, grade, school or parish, contact phone number and return mailing address (phone numbers and addresses will not be published). All information must be written on the back of the work or is securely attached to the work. Please do not use paper clips.
Entries are to be submitted to the: Keep Christ in Christmas Contest, 1712 Tenth Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11215. The deadline is Wednesday, December 18 at 5 p.m. The winners will receive prizes and have their works published in The Tablet.
