SUBECT: 2008 NATIONAL EDUCATION CONTEST
THEMES: “JESUS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD”

“PEOPLE WHO LIGHT UP MY WORLD”


Each local court should make a very special effort to sponsor the EDUCATION CONTEST. The themes selected for the contest encourage lively imagination and freedom of thought when student talent and application go hand in hand. The contest enables students of our communities, schools and CCD classes to compete and strive for awards while following certain fixed rules. The choice of the categories are:

ART ESSAY POETRY POSTER COMPUTER ART MUSIC PHOTOGRAPHY


The local court determines the amount of awards to be presented to the first three winning entries in each division, within each category. Plan a special event and invite parents, teachers and principals. Take a picture of the presentation, write an article and send to your diocesan paper. Ask a representative from your local paper to be present for the awards ceremony. Bring a few membership applications and invite new members into your court.
● All entries in all categories are to reflect the chosen theme. There may be an excellent Art or Poster entry, but if it does not identify with

the theme, it will not be a winner.




  • All entries are to be the original imagination of the participant. He/she should not look at a picture, statue, building, etc. and draw from what he/she sees. A participant needs to create an original idea for the entry.




  • All rules apply to Local, State and National entries.




  • The Local Court’s name, number, city, and state, as well as the Local Court Education Chairperson’s name and address should be on both the individual contest information sheet (art, poster, essay, poetry, computer art, music, and photography) and on the “Participant’s Cover Sheet” (white sheet attached) before contest information is distributed.




  • All Local Courts under the jurisdiction of a State Court send first place winners to the State Education Chairperson, using the “State Court Education Contest Cover Sheet” (yellow sheet attached). Ask your local court regent for the name of the State Education chairperson and insert that person’s name on the bottom of the yellow sheet. Only one first place winner per division, per category. Please do not send a first place winner in each theme as both will have to be disqualified. LOCAL COURTS: DO NOT SEND DIRECTLY TO NATIONAL EDUCATION CHAIRPERSON, AS ENTRIES WILL NOT BE RETURNED. If you have a State Regent, you have a State Court and a State Education chairperson, to whom the entries must be sent.




  • Local Courts not under the jurisdiction of a State Court: Send only first place winners to the National Education Chairperson.




  • State Chairperson: Type handwritten first place Poetry and Essay Contest entries sent to National. Glue or tape “Participant’s Cover Sheet” (see attached) to back of typed copy then staple original entry to typed copy. DO NOT use paper clips.




  • State Courts and Local Courts not under the jurisdiction of State Court: Send first place winners only to National Education Chairperson, using the “National Education Contest Cover Sheet” (pink sheet attached). Only one first place winner per division, per category.




  • Be sure all winning entries meet contest rules.
