NCCA-Artsplace and the Fremont Lions Club want you to know about a great art opportunity for Newaygo County youth! Lions International Peace Poster Contest is an international contest that encourages children, ages 11-13, to creatively express what peace means to them. The 2018-2019 contest theme is "Kindness Matters". The contest allows students to share their unique image of peace with others, so that we may all have greater tolerance and understanding.
By entering the contest, our youth will be joining hundreds of thousands of children from around the world in sharing their visions of world peace. Contestants are asked to create a poster that visually communicates the contest theme, "Kindness Matters". The contest is open to children who will be 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, 2018. Entry deadline in November 2, 2018 by 5:30 p.m. Please submit entries to NCCA-Artsplace, 13 East Main Street in downtown Fremont.
The Fremont Lions Club will select a winner from the Newaygo County youth entries. This selection will move on within the contest to Lions Club District judging….and then possibly on to international Lions Club judging! Posters will be evaluated on three criteria at each level of judging. The criteria are originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme, "Kindness Matters". All Newaygo County youth entering the contest will receive a "Certificate of Appreciation" from Fremont Lions Club for participating in the Lions International Peace Poster Contest. Up to twenty entries will be selected for display in the corridor gallery of NCCA-Artsplace, November 5 – 24.
Information on the contest and rules are listed on the NCCA-Artsplace website, www.ncca-artsplace.org or click here for a direct link.
Let's get our youth art-involved! This project is a great creative outlet for youth wanting to be more art-involved and helps them share how they feel "Kindness Matters"!
