The College Park Day is approaching very fast – I cannot believe,  it’s next month!!

Here is something exciting you can do with your school going children to help prepare for the event.

The event, is hosting a children’s poster contest.  Entitled “This is My Culture,” the contest asks College Park’s children to use pencil, crayon, and paint or pictures to show how they see their culture.  The poster can demonstrate the languages they speak, the food they eat, the clothes they wear, the places they visit, etc.  If the child was born in a foreign country, or has ties to that country, he or she can also feature the culture of that country.

Prizes will be awarded in two classifications, grades 1-3 and grades 4-6, one for each school.

The deadline for submission is September 30th, 2010.  Once winning artists are selected, prizes will be selected at random.  Winning artists may receive certificates / trophies from the City of College Park, free admission to the College Park Aviation Museum, College Park Day souvenirs, books and more.
