Living Vine is excited to sponsor the first (and hopefully annual) Easter Youth Art! This year’s theme is “For God so loved the world he…”. While we know the scripture verse from John 3:16 (“...gave his only Son. God gave his Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.” ICB Translation) we are inviting each youth to make a piece of art showing different ways they know God’s love. General information about the contest as well as contest rules are listed below. To submit entries please send a digital image to Living Vine Church at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 19th including the youth’s name, youth guardian information, student grade level, artistic media and artwork dimensions. The top three winner’s artwork will be posted on Sunday, March 28th on the Living Vine website with the top winner in each division receiving a $10 gift certificate to Dairy Queen. If you do not wish your child’s name and/or artwork to be posted on the Living Vine website your child can still enter and be eligible for the prize just please specify so when submitting his or her artwork. Judging will be based on creativity, originality, and adherence to the given theme.
