Calling all children and teens! Tell the world about the gift of the earth that we have received from the Creator. As a precious gift from God we want to take good care of it. During this jubilee year we are asking you to create a poster that will encourage people to find ways to let the earth rest!
Design a poster that:
– Encourages people to love the earth
– Show ways we can take care of the earth
– Reminds people how beautiful the earth is
– Suggest ways we can protect the earth
Take a photo or scan your poster and submit your entry by filling out the form above!
The deadline to submit is Sept 21, but get them in early because we want to post them on our website and other social media all through the Season of Creation (Sept 1 – Oct 4)!
