“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
How would you “design your dreams?” In honor of National Foster Care Month, Necco kids will have another opportunity to express their life dreams through art and poetry. The 2011 Youth Art & Poetry Contest is open to youth in Necco foster care, independent living, or residential programs in grades K-12 (+ for IL kids), as of May 1, 2011. Now through Friday, June 10 our kids may submit up to three entries for a chance to win monetary prizes and a chance at a grand prize guest spot designing the 2011 specialty t-shirt! Entry forms and official contest rules can be found online at http://www.necco.org/. Last year’s inaugural event was a great success with many quality entries from some very talented kids! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the judges’ committee this year!
