This schoolyear we have a new Knights-sponsored opportunity for youth to show their artistic abilities, and this time it will include grades K-8.  This is the Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

Entry form (front and back) went out in your student’s Wednesday folder. The entry forms are also located under and to the left of the front office window.

FYI, here is information about the contest:


Posters must reflect either the theme of Keep Christ in Christmas.

Each poster should be the original work (including concept, layout, slogan and any visual images) of a single person.

Posters must be 11X17 inches in size.  If pastels chalk, or charcoal are used the poster must be laminated or covered with clear plastic. Posters may be in color or black and white.

Each poster must be submitted with a Knights of Columbus Keep Christ in Christmas Contest entry form. The name and age of the person entering the poster should be included on the back of the poster.

All entries become the property of the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council.
