.- The Catholic Communication Campaign of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is sponsoring an art contest for children in grades 1 through 6.
The theme of the contest is “How the Good News Gets Around” and students are invited to draw a picture of how Jesus would tell the GOOD NEWS today.
First, second, and third place winners will be selected on the basis of originality and creativity. Cash prizes will be awarded. The submission deadline is March 1. Contest winners will be announced May 1.
The winning artwork will be featured on the USCCB Web site during May, Communications Month.
“We hope that parents and teachers will encourage students to reflect upon how Jesus might use today’s media to tell the Good News,” said Ramon Rodriguez, CCC’s Director of Development. “Then, we invite the students to use their creative talents to portray Jesus telling the Good News.”
