CASA Creativity Design Challenge Deadline Extended. We Need Your Help!
By Alli Stephens
What is the Creativity Challenge?
CASA Child Advocates of Montgomery County is currently seeking creative, talented youth to design the artwork for its next CASA Superhero Run t-shirt. For the past seven years, CASA has hosted a 5K/10K trail run fundraising & awareness event through W.G. Jones State Forest in Montgomery County. All participants in the run receive a special, commemorative t-shirt. CASA Child Advocates believes we should go straight to our youth and young adults for the best design ideas for this year’s shirt. By providing an original design, one lucky child/young adult can see his or her vision come to life in the Fall of 2017!
So how can you help? Number one on the eligibility and requirements list is "Applicant must have a CASA Child Advocate." Our only way to reach out to our youth and let them know about this fun and exciting opportunity is through YOU. When you visit your CASA child this month, take some art supplies with you (see Vicki Bradley's article below about supplies available in the CASA Toy Room...), and encourage the child/youth to create something based on the question, "What does your CASA mean to you?"
Please note, children of all ages and artistic abilities are encouraged to participate! Even if their design is not selected for the shirt, we hope to be able to use their creations for other CASA purposes.
A completed and signed entry form is required when submitting artwork, and for children under the age of 18, signature of the legal guardian is also needed. Download the form HERE
and print as needed. Submission instructions are also included on the form.
Thank you for your help, and please contact me directly if you have any questions.
