Twenty-two winners will be selected in this competition; their artwork will be displayed at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. during Advent and Christmas 2019.
Two grand-prize winners will also be chosen, and their artwork will appear as the official Christmas card of the National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies, Father Andrew Small, OMI.
National contest winners will be notified in late spring 2019 and announced to Catholic media in fall 2019; all winners receive a commemorative plaque.
This contest is open to young Catholics in grades K-8. Entries must be postmarked or received by January 31, 2019. Winners from last year's contest (2017-2018) may not enter this year’s competition.
