The Saint Patrick Centre is launching an online art competition to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day this year and to mark our Twentieth Anniversary serving the community at home and abroad.
With public celebrations on hold due to Covid-19 this Saint Patrick’s Day, the Downpatrick-based Centre is offering a chance for children to recreate the Spirit of Patrick through art.
Primary school pupils are invited to take part and win prizes which include Nintendo Switches and an i-PAD mini
Primary 1-2 will be judged on a Colouring in Competition, whilst P3-P5 are asked to Design a Stained Glass Window. P6-P7 are invited to design and write a cartoon script about the life of Saint Patrick.
“Saint Patrick is a fascinating figure with an amazing life story and an important part of the schools curriculum’ said Dr Tim Campbell, Director of Saint Patrick Centre, Downpatrick.
“This is a great way for children – who have had a challenging year with their education disrupted due to Covid-19 – to have some fun and learn about our rich heritage and culture at the same time.”
“We hope parents and teachers will encourage children to have some fun and participate and have a chance to win some lovely prizes.”
Children wishing to take part can download the information from www.saintpatrickcentre.com.
Prizes are a Nintendo switch for the two younger age groups and i-Pad mini for P6-P7.
Submissions can be made online to firstname.lastname@example.org until March 12thand the winners will be announced on St Patrick’s Day.
Entrants must include contact details such as email or phone number. The winning artwork will be displayed St Patrick’s Website and facebook pages.
All entrants must work on the sheets provided. Additional material such as glitter and other elements are allowed but the entries will be judged as a 2D art piece.
