Knights of Columbus Council 7025 Names “Keep Christ in Christmas” Poster Contest Winners
Monsignor Slade Catholic School students were invited by the Knights of Columbus McGivney Council #7025 to participate in the Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest. Students age 5 - 14 are invited to create a poster displaying their interpretation of the meaning of Christmas with the goal of reminding others to celebrate Christ’s birth.
The contest is conducted at the local council; winning entries will potentially advance through district/regional and jurisdictional competitions. Winners advance to the international level. Winning entries will serve as the basis for a series of international Keep Christ in Christmas posters with creative credit given to the artists.
On Sunday, December 15, 2019, the McGivney Council recognizied eight winners from Monsignor Slade. First, second, and third place winners were selected in three categories. The students and their parents attended a reception to celebrate their selection and even played a
"wrap and decorate the Christmas tree" game.
Congratulations to the following winners:
Kindergarten - Second Grade
1st: Zoya Rab
2nd: Agder Colon
3rd: Grady Rath
Third - Fifth Grades
1st: Kara Mehta
2nd: Lily Nguyen
Sixth - Eighth Grades
1st: Sienna Mueller
2nd: Isabelle Salazar

The remaining entries will be displayed throughout the school, then eventually returned to the artists. Thank you, students, for contributing thoughtful and beautiful artwork for the Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest again this year!
