Kids send a Christmas message

This wonderful drawing by Tyla Johnson, 10, of Lennox Head is one of the entries in the CASPA What Christmas means to me Art Competition.

CASPA is calling for entries for its What Christmas means to me Art Competition, with great prizes up for grabs for primary school kids who can come up with an original, colourful and funky design for a Christmas card.

Entries are due by October 16 and will be displayed at the CASPA Art Sale at Clunes Old School from October 20-22. People will be asked to vote for their favourite design and the 10 most popular will become the official CASPA Christmas cards for 2006. These will be sold around the region to raise money for CASPAs vital work providing love and support for abused or neglected kids.

Because CASPA is all about supporting children we try and create fundraising initiatives that celebrate children and their talents, said co-ordinator, Kay Knights. Often when we have neglected or abused children we find art is a wonderful vehicle for them to express their emotions safely. This competition is all about getting children to express their feelings of what Christmas means to them.

Artworks should be no larger than A4 and entry is by gold coin. Entries must come with the childs name, age, phone number, address and school printed on the back and should be dropped off at CASPA, 17 Keen Street, Lismore. Or you phone Kay on 0408 834 799 and shell pick it up from the school.
