In celebration for World Water Day, March 22, Native Hope is sponsoring a Mní Wičóni—Water is Life Coloring and Drawing Contest for youth. We encourage all youth to get their creative minds going through participating in the contest.
Below you will find the rules and downloads for the coloring contest.
1. There will be three categories for competition:
Ages 5 and under will be given a coloring page to color how they wish.
Ages 6-11 will be given a more challenging coloring page to color as they wish.
Ages 12-18 will be given a page to draw their interpretation of "Why is water life?"
Crayons, markers, or colored pencils may be used. No gluing on of extra materials or embellishments will be allowed.
Every youth must write their name and age IN PENCIL on the back of the page in the lower right corner.
Entries will be judged for neatness, use of color, creativity, and eye appeal.
One entry per youth.
A t-shirt will be designed from the winning entry from the 12-18 age group.
By entering, each youth agrees to allow Native Hope to use their picture for publication.
