May 2-8 is Children’s Mental Health Week in Ontario. We’re asking teachers and students at elementary schools across KFL&A to mark this special week by making an art project and entering it into our contest. Make a collage, meme, mural, painting, drawing, crafts and more. We’ll pick two at random and give them a pizza party!
How to enter:
1. Working as a class, create an art project representing Children’s Mental health.
2. Submit a photo of your project by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Two winners will be chosen by random draw. Contest is open to any classroom in KFL&A. Entries must be submitted by Thursday, May 5 at 4:00PM. Do not include any student names or identifying information on the project. Entries will be posted on Maltby Centre social media. Winners will be announced Friday May 6 on Maltby Centre social media and the winning class will be contacted directly.
Thanks for making Children’s Mental Health Week special!
