Calling All Artists -- Colombian Competition
If your Colombianitos are 10-17 years old, there is an art competition that may interest you.
Race car driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, together with Formula Sonrisas, and Colombia es Pasion announced an art competition to design his helmet that will be used in the Daytona on July 3, 2010.
The competition is open until May 20, 2010, and the winner will be announced in June. Your child's artistic design should revolve around the following theme.
DIVERSITY OF COLOMBIA, including Biodiversity (my blog's entries for the last few months should be helpful here http://raisingcolombiankids.blogspot.com/search/label/Flora/Fauna). You may also include the riches of Colombia, her peoples, her culture, and her music.
To compete, your child must be Colombian. He/She must be between the ages of 10 and 17. He/She must have a valid US visa -- if not a dual US/Colombian citizen -- make sure to outline that your child is a Colombian living abroad.
You must also use this link to download the design format.
Then, your child's finished creation must be scanned and sent to:
Good luck! I think it is a great opportunity to bring a little Colombia to your home and help Colombians in Colombia remember that there are many Colombians living abroad that love their country too.
