Children invited to participate in ‘We Are America’ art contest
July 6, 2010
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has commissioned an art project for children ages 5-12 to create images depicting their interpretation of the theme, “We Are America.”
The project asks children to draw pictures that answer the question “People have come from all over the world to become Americans. Why does that make us great?”
USCIS will display submissions in offices across the country and will recognize participants during the 2010 celebration of the “September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.”
All art submissions must be:
- On 8.5-by-11 or 11-by-17 paper in any medium, including paint, crayons, markers, colored pencils or a collage.
- Accompanied by a short paragraph (two to three sentences) that explains how the picture relates to the project theme and answers the question.
- Submitted to USCIS by Aug. 16.
