As Mothers’ Day approaches we thought it would be a fun idea to invite all the children of our community to our own very special Art Contest.
The contest is open to kids 13 years of age and under and entry is free. We will have weekly prizes targeted to kids (yet to be decided) and the winning pieces will be published on our home page every week.
If you are a kid, we hope you'll gather some basic art supplies and some 8.5x11 paper (but you can also do this on a computer art program or website) and draw or paint something that illustrates or tells the story of how diabetes has affected an aspect of your daily life or how do you think it is different from the life of other kids.
If you are a parent of a kid that either has diabetes or that has a loved one with it, please encourage them to enrich us all with their creative visions on how his or her world has been touched by diabetes.
-Your relationship with your parents or caregivers.
-Your interaction with friends or other kids.
-Your daily schedule.
-For older kids, your sense of responsibility.
-Any other aspect of your life with diabetes you may want to share with us.
In order to participate you need to submit:
1) Your Artwork
2) Your Name and artwork title.
3) What type of diabetes you have? Type I, Type II or Type III (a loved one has diabetes)
4) Brief description of your masterpiece (optional).
Submission for this month’s contest will be closed the last day of May at midnight, but you are welcome to upload your picture anytime after that.
In case it is more convenient for you, if you do not have a digital camera, a scanner or the software in your computer to let you turn in a digital painting, feel free to mail your painting with the above information to:
