In our society today, Christmas has become for many – especially children – a secular holiday. To combat this, the Knights of Columbus has introduced the Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest. It allows young people to engage their creative talents and imaginations while understanding the true, spiritual meaning of Christmas. It is open to all young people between the ages of 5 and 14. The contest will be conducted locally with winning entries progressing through, district, provincial and international levels.
Each year, Knights of Columbus Council 1429 engages the staff and students of Sacred Heart and Gregory Hogan schools to participate in this contest that is open to all young people between the ages of 5 and 14. Winners selected at the council level earn cash prizes and the eligibility to move on to the District, Regional, State and International levels.
What you see above, is a sample of entries as they were being judged by Knights and their families. The winners will be announced shortly.
A view of the judges below, engrossed in their work. A big THANK YOU to Dave Pirt and his family – Deanna, Josh and Rachel and also to Brian for devoting their time and also for the great effort.
