"BE THE LIGHT" Art Contest

Children and teens are encouraged to create their artistic rendition on the theme:

"A little bit of light can dispel a lot of darkness"
I can be the light by spreading goodness! Or what Chanukah means to you!

It could be a painting, drawing, photograph, sculpture or cartoon...let your creativity guide you!

The objective is to encourage children to think how they can make a difference in their environment and see themselves as ambassadors of light and goodness!

There will be three winners. First place winner will also grace the cover of West Hartford Magazine and be featured on we-ha.com!

Other prizes: Electric Scooter, $50 Amazon Gift Card

The winning artwork will be announced on stage at the Fire and Ice Celebration outside of Town Hall in West Hartford Center on Sunday evening, December 10th.

Send a photo(s) of your art to [email protected]. Submit your photos by Tuesday, Dec 5th to be considered.
